HR policies are formal guidelines and procedures established by an organisation's human resources department to govern various aspects of the employment relationship between the employer and employees. These policies help ensure consistency, fairness, and compliance with legal requirements and industry standards.
HR policies are important for ensuring a consistent and fair approach to managing employees, and for communicating clear expectations and guidelines to both employees and managers. They can also help mitigate legal risks and ensure compliance with legal requirements and industry standards.
Here are some key UK employment legislations that apply to employment policies:
