Writing Key Workplace Policies...Even During the COVID-19 Pandemic Thursday 24 June 2021 10:00am 03:00pm

Image Drafting Workplace Policies

Every business should have a system that clearly outlines expectations for standards of behaviour, procedures and protocols – whether through company policies or a policy manual. Within the context of the difficulties currently presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, such a system is even more important, as it can:

  • Avoid inconsistencies;
  • Protect your company from costly litigation or fraudulent employee behaviour, and;
  • Serve as a training tool, especially for new employees.

This session will provide useful insights for both large and small organisations, whether you need to update existing policies or create new ones. Participants will leave with the skills needed to effectively write and communicate workplace policies, even within the environment of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, ensuring that their current policies or policy manuals are relevant to the current and future needs of their organisation.

 

Topics to be Covered

  • Essentials of a good policy
  • Lifecycle of a policy
  • The language, style and format of a policy
  • Measuring and evaluating the impact of a policy
  • Policy roll-out: the dos and don’ts
  • Practical Writing Session on Key Workplace Policies: Lay Off, Work from
  • Home Policy, Sick Leave and Grievance policy in the context of COVID-19

Managing and Addressing Overtime and Injury in a Remote Environment (The Series) Tuesday 29 June 2021 10:00am Thursday 08 July 2021 12:00pm

Image Overtime and Injury

As Trinidad and Tobago continue to face the challenges associated with existing public health restrictions and stay-at-home orders, many employers have turned to work-from-home, where feasible, to support business continuity and survival. Under normal circumstances, time management is often a difficult task and usually manifests in significant overtime bills for many companies. Remote work introduces a new set of challenges for employers, not only with time management but also with ensuring that work is conducted in a safe environment and manner.

But what should happen when a worker wishes to claim overtime in a remote environment? What happens if an injury occurs? What are the rights and obligations of employers and employees?
