Read the document to make sure it meets your needs. Remember that if you have any questions you can easily Ask a lawyer.
Simply having a Policy doesn’t mean you’ve complied with your legal obligations. Make sure the employer only makes commitments in the policy that it can realistically meet. Make a plan for the implementation of the Communications and Equipment Policy.
Make the Communications and Equipment Policy available to employees by, for example:
including it in induction packs
providing it in hard copy
sending it out by email
putting it on notice boards
putting it on an intranet site or other easily accessible computer systems
The Communications and Equipment Policy is not a contract and does not need to be signed or agreed to by the employee. You can ask employees sign to an acknowledgement to show that they received it, but it’s not legally required.
Keep your Communications and Equipment Policy for your records. A copy of the Policy will also be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
When the Communications and Equipment Policy is amended, keep a copy of each version of it that has been in force, a record of when it was introduced and how and when each version was made available to employees.
