General Working Rules For An Ideal Employer

General work rules often considered

Choosing a simple set of work regulations made up of a few generally accepted as well as prohibited conducts is much advised. In place of a lengthy set of regulations, small businesses are advised to go for a simple list of regulations and guidelines for making it clear to the workers what sort of behaviour was expected from their part.

Here is a set of simple set of general workplace rules

  • Safety rules to be observed
  • Tardiness policy explaining the way to report the number of sick days allowable and personal off days erased
  • Time of work to be recorded (Using a time sheet or clock)
  • Rules of the lunch period and other breaks
  • Policy for overtime
  • Rules regarding personal appearance including dress code
  • Employer’s property damage rules
  • Rules on maintaining sensitive information of the employers as well as the customers

To quote from Michelle Obama

We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.

As a defence against wrongful discharge claims

Even for at-will employers that have greater freedom for allowing workers to leave for avoiding legal hassles involved with termination procedures, the reasoning of any such action should be wanted to be sound as well as defensible. One way to ensure this is by having a number of basic and vividly stated employees’ rules well communicated to the workers. By this, any worker breaking a work rule ends up doing so with the knowledge that his conduct is not acceptable and such conduct might end up in inviting termination.
