Employers have to walk a fine line between taking care of employees and making decisions that protect the company’s bottom line. There might be times when employees don’t understand why certain decisions are being made. They may become angry and opt to pursue legal action against you. It is up to you to ensure that your company is protected from this.
One of the best things that you can do is to set your policies and procedures with the thought of litigation in mind. You don’t need to have things sneak up on you as you’re trying to run your company. By having everything in writing, you can show investigators and the court that you aren’t making decisions on the fly.
Sometimes, employees might claim that you set policies just because of who they are or the situation they are in. Being able to show that you aren’t discriminating or retaliating against anyone may come down to those written policies.
