Three Policies Every Employee Should Sign

There are three policies that every employee should sign before they start working:

  1. Receipt of the employer’s anti-harassment policies (that clearly informs the employee that unlawful harassment is prohibited and what steps a person should take if s/he believes s/he is a victim of unlawful harassment);
  2. Acknowledgment of the at-will nature of the employment (that can only be modified in writing signed by the President, CEO, Owner, or other applicable employee); and
  3. Receipt of the employer’s Computer/Technology Use policies (that clearly informs the employee that the employer may monitor Internet/Email use and limiting Internet/Email use).

Receipt and acknowledgment of these three policies reduces exposure to potentially costly litigation.
