Workplace Policy & Contract Development

Businesses require policies and contracts to create and maintain organizational structure and can't afford to follow a "one size fits all" approach. From hiring staff to ensuring safe work environments for all employees, Taylor McCaffrey LLP can help develop and draft all relevant materials tailored to your specific needs.

In unionized environments, collective bargaining negotiations are routine and require oversight and execution to safeguard business goals and ensure employers agree to what is realistically within their means.

We have significant experience preparing and negotiating collective agreements for employers of unionized workforces.

Workplace policies ensure rule and order for all employees, and compliance with statutory obligations. Guidelines for best practices, policies have long been vital to the effective operation of businesses and organizations. A generic policy found online will in most cases be worse than no policy at all. Your policies must be drafted clearly and with your specific needs in mind.

Policies frequently address issues such as:

  • Accessibility
  • Anti-discrimination, harassment and workplace violence
  • Acceptable and unacceptable conduct
  • Discipline and dismissal
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Internet, email and social media
  • Mobile devices
  • Privacy
  • Safety and health

    Sexual Orientation and the Road to Equality

    2020 | 02 | 13
