Use of Employer Premises Policy
Author: Theresa Rogers
Employers must offer customers and clients a welcoming workplace, yet must also provide a safe, secure working environment for its employees. Implementing a clear Use of Employer Premises Policy helps protect not only employer equipment, data and property, but also provides additional protection for employees and visitors and reduces the incidence of trespassers.
Trespassing and unauthorized access of employer premises often lead to criminal behavior. In many cases, trespassers commit vandalism, industrial espionage, terrorism and assaults. Because trespassing laws vary between cities, counties and states, employers must review all local regulations to adapt a written policy to meet laws in their area.
