The Employee Hiring Policy Procedure outlines the steps your company should follow when hiring personnel to ensure that the best new employees are found. The hiring policy helps your company avoid the loss of time money, productivity and opportunity cost.
The hiring of a new employee is an expensive process. It takes time, money, and a thorough understanding of the needs of the organization, both today and in the future. Every employee is expected to make a far greater contribution to the company, in terms of revenue, than the actual expenses incurred.
The Employee Hiring Policy Procedure applies to all hiring of full-time, part-time or temporary employees. (22 pages, 5023 words)
Definitions: Full-Time. Employees hired full time (40 hours a week) on a full workweek basis are considered full-time employees for compensation and benefit purposes.
Part-Time. Employees whose work schedule is less than full time (less than 40 hours a week) on a full work week basis are part-time employees for all compensation and benefit purposes.
Temporary. Employees, contractors hired as temporary replacement for full-time or part-time employees, or for short periods of employment such as summer month, peak periods and vacations are considered temporary employees. Temporary employees are not eligible for benefits regardless of the number of hours or weeks worked.
Disability. Under the ADA, a “disability” is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities such as seeing, hearing, speaking or working, etc. Illiteracy is even covered if caused by a physical or mental disorder.
