In a research paper, provide researched rationale for the nature and substance of your 5 selected, distinct policies. This paper is to be reflective of an academic research paper. The research paper must address the reasoning and/or rationale for the inclusion of the selected policy elements in a policy manual.
The selected policies must correctly address employment legislation pertinent to the stated size of the company (15–25 employees). In elaborating on the rationale, you may want to consider the following questions: Why should these elements be in a policy manual? What laws or principles mandate an organization follow these guidelines? What cases have established precedent for this issue to be addressed clearly in an organization’s employee policy manual?
The following are the HR policy topics to include in this paper.
• Code of Conduct
• Benefits (This can be more specific to areas such as paid time off, health care benefits, and so forth.)
• Training Opportunities/Expectations
