Why Do Businesses Need Workplace Policies?

Many businesses view drafting workplace policies as a Human Resources function rather than a legal one. Undoubtedly, legal services and HR consultants are an added cost to business operations. After all, small businesses, especially start-ups, don’t have a dedicated HR department to retain a lawyer, let alone extra cash in operations. Therefore, workplace policies are an afterthought for many employers, especially those just starting out. In this context, workplace policies’ preventive role and value in warding off litigation are often underestimated.
