MGT 331 Employee Handbook Assignments
An employee handbook or human resources policy manual is one of the most important documents an organization can have (and maintain). It sets expectations for employees of what is expected of them and what they are entitled to. While it is possible to come up with incorrect information that should not be included in the handbook, you have the freedom to decide (realistically, ethically and legally) how to write your policies and what information to include.
The Written Policy Subsections:
Your written policies should be realistic, ethical and legal, and include best-practice information on the topic as discussed in class and our textbook. Policies should be clear and complete but also concise, just as they would in a real employee handbook. You may need to read ahead of the class and/or obtain information from outside sources to write some of your subsections. Please cite all sources, including the textbook. DO NOT lift your policies from online sources, as this is plagiarism and will affect your grade, up to and including a grade of 0 on the entire assignment.
The assignment will be graded on Content, Clarity, Creativity, Critical Thinking & Correctness (grammar, format, spelling, punctuation) according to the rubric on the next page
