Employment Policies for Small Businesses: A Chat

Last week one of our Sherpas, Forrest Donaldson, was fortunate to be a guest on Momentum Law‘s Facebook Live event. Together Forrest and Megan Cornell, a lawyer and the Founder & CEO of Momentum Law, discussed the legal and HR importance of having proper written Employment Policies in your small business. They specifically went over:

  • Social media policies
  • Violence and harassment policy (legally required)
  • Policies around various leaves of absence
  • Cannabis policy

The chat was so full of substance that we couldn’t upload it as one file! Each type of policy that was reviewed has been segmented below:

Social Media Policies

Violence and Harassment Policies

Leave Policies

Cannabis Policies

If you found this chat useful then good news! Momentum Law holds Facebook Live chats every Friday at 11:00 am; see their Facebook page here. This conversation between Megan and Forrest was specifically for their new learning platform, Momentum Business Law Academy.
