Do your company need help with your policies?
The landscape of employment law legislation, and other legislation that impacts on employees and employees, such as the Protected Disclosures Act 2014, and the Protected Disclosures Amendment Act 2022, which comes into force on 1st Jan 2023 for some employers and for other employers on 17th Dec 2023, as well as Codes of Practice from the WRC and the IHRC, guidance from the DPC, all create a complex environment for employers, who must create and update their policies in these areas on an ongoing basis.
Employers must also keep abreast of case law and developments.
Added to that complexity, is the changing nature of the workplace, and events in the social media and internet space.
This is where CollierBroderick can support organisations.
Protected Disclosure Policy
If you don’t have or need to update your existing Protected Disclosures policy, our experienced workplace investigators who are also experienced and qualified in protected disclosures, will be able to quickly assist you in putting the necessary policy in place relevant to your organisation.
The disciplinary policy should be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis in order to ensure it is robust and is up-to-date with changing workplaces, technologies, practices and the multitude of case law.
Recent case law means that employers should have a probation policy and update their contract of employment to allow for no-fault dismissals among other things.
Bullying and Harassment Policy
It is essential that the bullying and harassment policy, including sexual harassment, is update regularly and is in line with the code of practice.
There is a growing volume of cases into the WRC regarding retirement age. It is advisable that there is a retirement policy in the organisation, that contracts are clear, and that all documentation is aligned with the case law and the code of practice.
Social Media / Internet Policy
With all the developments in social media and internet use, and cases of trial/dismissal by social media for employees, it is advisable that employers have updated policies, contract provisions, training, and communications to reflect an ever-changing environment for employers and employees.
