Employee Solicitation Policy
Author: Jason Habinsky, Haynes & Boone
When to Use
Employers may find it useful to develop and implement an Employee Solicitation Policy in order to control and manage the workplace. This type of policy will help prevent employees from distracting co-workers with non job-related causes during work hours. Like most other policies, the employer's Solicitation Policy should be communicated to employees at the commencement of employment and the employer should make sure that employees sign and acknowledge that they have received and understand the policy. The Solicitation Policy should be referred to whenever there is a question regarding what is permissible during work time.
