A model right to search policy which is in line with best practice, contains clear and effective wording, and is easy to edit.
Right to Search
Whilst most employees are loyal and trustworthy, it is an unfortunate fact that some employees may occasionally be dishonest or they may try to bring drugs or alcohol into the workplace in contravention of the Companys rules and procedures (see the section in this Handbook on Alcohol and Drugs).
In order to counter these potential problems, the Company reserves the right to carry out personal searches of employees in the workplace. Searches will be conducted having regard to the section in this Handbook on Equal Opportunities and Dignity at Work and entirely on a random basis. They may be carried out at any time whilst an employee is in the workplace.
The full Right to Search policy will be available once purchased.
