Another HR Essential
Employers of all types, including churches, large and small should have an employee handbook for all employees covering the basic tenets and guidelines under which the employer operates.
As churches rarely have personnel dedicated to Human Resources, some basic yet important HR items are often overlooked. An employee handbook can clarify a number of important items that should be documented to help alleviate the risk of any misunderstandings.
Common items in most employee handbooks include:
Hours of operation
Code(s) of conduct
Leave/Time off policies
Conflict of interest
Use of equipment
Signatures & Date
Clearly documenting important operating principles and policies and having employees sign the acceptance of the handbook at hiring provides a common understanding for both the church and the employee(s) and can help avoid confusion.
