An employer may use this policy to inform employees that it is committed to doing business legally and ethically. A Whsitleblower Policy will help to reassure employees that they can disclose misconduct without fear of retaliation.
In the event of an emergency, it is critical that employees are aware of how the situation affects them, their office and their workday. An employer may use this policy to advise employees on the communication channels available, which may include remote access to the employer's network and a local telephone number with an updated recorded message on the status of the emergency.
An employer may use this policy to convey that the unauthorized disclosure or use of confidential information will not be tolerated by the employer and that employees will be subject to strict disciplinary measures for such disclosures or misuse. Having a written policy on confidential and proprietary information will decrease the likelihood that employees will inadvertently use or disclose such information.
