Employer Policies

This assignment is an extension of the Employment Decision assignment; it is like a part II. In

essence, employer policies (especially written, but also unwritten) are the codification of

decision making. The lecture/essay for the employment decision assignment and all previous

assignments also pertain to this assignment.

Company or employer policies vary greatly. Some include little more than simple vision,

mission, and/or goals statements. Some contain procedures, organizational information and

detailed rules and forms used on a daily basis to guide the company. Some policies are unwritten,

some are scattered about in many documents; some are compiled into one book. It is clear that

policies, regardless of their form, can be advantageous or disadvantageous to running the

company. Policies can be evaluated in terms of their usefulness and legality. Policies vary due to

 The nature of the business, e.g., automobile manufacture vs auto sales vs auto repair;

health care vs banking vs retail grocery.

 The nature of the employees, e.g., demographics, education, hourly vs exempt. Labor

 Other characteristics and factors, such as number of employees, customers, volume of

production or service, type of ownership, and many other factors.

it) and analyze it for the legal, ethical, and managerial dimensions.

resources, offering guidelines on acceptable use in terms of prevailing laws and organizational

norms, providing training and periodic re-training, providing a social advocacy leader, providing
