Threats of violence in schools are a growing problem nationwide. Due in part to the popularity of social media, threats have increased in both frequency and anonymity. As a result of these threats, schools often report losses in resources, as well as decreases in student performance.
As the new Executive Director of APEI, I wanted to introduce myself and report on our successful policy renewal season.
Policies & Procedure vs. Employee Handbook
One of the most valuable tools an employer can have to prevent employment liability claims are comprehensive policies and procedures to guide the organization in all manner of employment practices. One of the best practices an employer can have is a method for ensuring that the organization’s policies are communicated to all staff. Simply stating that the policies exist and that it is the responsibility of the employee to be familiar and comply with the policies may not be enough. A well-written employee handbook will communicate key organizational policies in a format that employees are more likely to read and understand.
