General Material
Published Date

This tool, available on the “Workplaces Respond” website, will help employers create a workplace policy by guiding employers through a series of questions, offering a choice of model language based on a promising practice (which has the most protective language for employees) or, if applicable, language based on the law in the specific state or locality. With either choice employers will be in compliance with the relevant law. In some jurisdictions, specific laws do not exist for each issue this policy covers, then employers will only see the "promising practice" as a choice. The policy can be downloaded after completion, and a checklist of additional matters to consider will also be sent.
