Employment Policies Drafting / Review FAQ
What sort of employment policies does my company need?
Typical policies include an employee handbook that deals with things like values, compensation, vacation, harassment, drugs and alcohol, conflict of interest, confidentiality, discipline, etc. Every company has different needs, and an employment lawyer can help you sort this out.
My employer has just introduced a new policy that I don’t feel is fair. What should I do?
Employers have the discretion to introduce new policies in the workplace from time to time, but you also have the legal rights concerning how those policies are introduced and what is contained in the policies. An employment lawyer can help you understand whether the new policy is actually legal, and what you can do if it isn’t.
Is my boss allowed to pay my wages late?
Employers are not allowed to miss pay days. Employers are generally required to pay employees at least once per month, and more frequently if that is the contract / arrangement between the worker and employer.
