Human Resource Policies and Employee Handbooks


It is essential for employers, regardless of size, to have fully-developed human resource policies and manuals. These documents outline the company’s operating procedures, as well as establishing the terms and conditions that govern the employment relationship, such as:

  • Vacation policies
  • Workplace conduct (including harassment prevention)
  • Hours of work and overtime (including individual employee agreements)
  • Leaves of absence
  • Termination
  • Hours of work and overtime procedures
  • Health and safety (including violence prevention)

Proper employment manuals and policies are essential to the productive operation of a workplace. Our lawyers regularly draft new policies and manuals and review existing ones, ensuring compliance with Ontario laws and taking into account prevailing best practices standards.

We can also help with the introduction of new policies and advise as to how to make policies binding on the workforce while avoiding concerns relating to constructive dismissal.
