HUMAN RESOURCE AUDIT CHECKLIST OVERVIEW OF REASONS FOR POLICY DEVELOPMENT Legislative requirements Some legislation includes requirements for written policies and procedures to be in place with ongoing implementation. Codes of conduct Codes of conduct detail issues that are not regulated by law but are the standards, behaviours and expectations set by the employer in the workplace. Conditions of employment Conditions of employment which may fall within this category include: attendance, absenteeism, punctuality, transfer, training, promotion, probation, performance review, discipline, abandonment of employment, exit interviews, notice, and termination. Employee entitlements Policies included within this category may include annual leave, long service leave, bereavement leave, parental leave, carers leave, jury leave, special leave, overtime, shift work and details of any other entitlements. Employee benefits Some organisations provide a range of employee benefits not prescribed by legislation or awards. These can relate to such matters as employee health, or assisting employees to balance work and family responsibilities. It is important to clarify how such benefits are awarded to employees in an organisation policy in order to ensure that all employees know of their availability, they are distributed fairly, and that any conditions applying are understood. Employee benefits, which fall into this category, may include: company cars, mobile phones, employee assistance programs, salary packaging, career breaks, working from home and study assistance. The following audit checklist below provides a list of policies, procedures and documentation that are useful for organisations to consider in managing the employment relationship.
