Tags : description, evaluating, Form, full-time, process
Description: Creating a position description is a key step in the hiring process. You must be able to accurately describe what a new employee will do in order to decide how to divide the work between you and your employee. A position description is also helpful in evaluating whether you need a full-time employee or a part-timer. It can form the basis of advertisements that you run, and can be used to present a clear picture of the job to job applicants. Finally, it can play a part in evaluating whether an employee has met the expectations you set. Source: Business Owners Toolkit

Description: Employee morale problems can be the result of any number of workplace problems. If employees don't like a particular supervisor, or feel that their work isn't appreciated, results will suffer. Getting to the root of the problem is sometimes a challenge. In many instances, the only way to get at it is to ask your employees to tell you. This can be a difficult situation for you and for them. On the one hand, you can gain valuable information about how to increase your employees' job satisfaction. On the other, you might have to face the fact that something that you do is a source of problems.

Tags : Competitive Advantage, employee rights, legal counsel, non-compete
Description: When an employee leaves your business, is he or she taking things along that you would rather not give up? Is the employee going to open up in competition with you, or try to steal your customers, or employ secret processes that are a source of your competitive advantage? Obviously, no employer wants to lose an employee under those circumstances. One way to avoid this is to enter into agreements with your employees that restrict their rights to compete with you. You can make such an agreement a condition of employment, if you wish.

Tags : employee leaving, forms, reference release
Description: When an employee leaves, it is best to come to an explicit agreement regarding what information relating to the ex-employee you will disclose, and to whom it can be disclosed. Obviously, you want to be protected from any claims that your comments cost the employee a chance at a new job. At the same time, you don't want to be put in a situation where you are uncomfortable with the information that you feel you have to provide. Remember that, as an employer, you may establish any policy that you wish.
