HR Policies are a vital part of an organisation’s employment framework. But less can be more.
As HR manager, you need to make sure your organisation:
- has the HR policies that it needs (and only those that it needs)
- has HR policies that comply with the law in a way that actually works for the organisation
- has HR policies that are consistent with each other, and are consistent with your employment contracts, Modern Awards and Enterprise Agreements
- has HR policies that do not contain terms that might be considered to be part of the employment contract
