Reimbursement of Expenses policy
Sick absence policy
A sick absence policy should make clear exactly what's expected from both the employer and employee if the employee is sick.
Social media policy
A social media policy is a code of conduct that provides guidelines for employees who post content on the internet either as part of their job or as a private person.
The goal of a social media policy is to set expectations for appropriate behaviour, and ensure that an employee's posts will not expose the company to legal problems.
Standards of behaviour at work policy
Standards of behaviour means the minimum standards of conduct and performance that you should expect from your employees.
Whilst it is not possible to set out in detail the standards expected in every respect, this document provides some clarity on important aspects.
Taking time off work (general absence) policy
A general absence policy should make clear exactly what's expected from both the employer and employee if the employee needs to take time off work for reasons other than holiday (annual leave) or sickness.
A timekeeping policy specifies the expectations on employees to be at work, on time, and available. It also manages expectations for what happens when things go wrong, and what measures may be taken.

Unauthorised absence is when an employee does not attend work and has not given a reason for their absence or contacted their employer to inform them of their absence.
It can also be called absent without leave (AWOL) or absent without permission.
