Tags : Drug, Policies, Testing
Description: In some small businesses, the work that is being done is high risk or dangerous enough to warrant drug testing, either at the time of hire, during employment, or both. If your business falls into the category of those that drug tests employees, you should have a written policy that explains how drug testing works and what employees can expect.

Tags : inappropriate, Rules, sample, unreasonable
Description: An employer has the right to expect his or her employees to conform to a reasonable standard of conduct. Employees who act in an inappropriate or unreasonable manner can damage your business by creating unhappy coworkers or, even worse, unhappy customers or clients. While you might feel that it should be obvious what is appropriate and what is not, it is very risky to assume every employee will share your views. One of the best ways to make it clear what you expect is to have a set of general work rules.
Tags : Applicant's, Employer, employment, Former
Description: A previous employer can be a valuable source of information regarding someone you are considering hiring. While some may refuse to provide any information, many will be happy to share their thoughts and opinions with you. Bear in mind that they too are in business, and send them a request that they can deal with quickly while still supplying you with the information you need to make an informed hiring decision.
Tags : Applicant, history, information, samples
Description: The attached file contains a couple of samples that you can use to gather information about an applicant's work history. Customize either one to suit your needs, but be sure not to add any unlawful inquiries to your work history document.

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
Tags : employee, feedback, satisfaction, situation
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 : Consent Form, employee, Sample Drug, Testing
