Updating Policy Language - Return to Office

Many of our clients with HR Partners have emphasized the stress of work schedules and locations changing because of the pandemic.  Now, they want to get back to pre-March 2020 business operations schedules (if they have not already).  Please see the template policy below, and please feel free to incorporate this language into your employee handbook.

Work Schedules

The regular workweek for full-time {COMPANY} employees is Monday through Friday and consists of forty (40) hours, excluding lunch breaks. Employees will be provided with their work schedules by their Supervisor and will be notified promptly should any changes be made to their schedules. {COMPANY} may alter, change, or modify the employee’s schedule or location at its sole discretion. Remote work is prohibited unless authorized in advanced by {COMPANY}. Employees should direct all questions regarding their schedule to their Supervisor.

One more item:  good article on this subject matter that I read today from SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management).  As always, please contact HR Partners at 785-233-7860 with any of your questions or concerns.

Making the Case for Return to Office

What our clients say...

Gwen Denton
Human Resources Director 
Grandstand Glassware & Apparel

"I have worked with HR Partners for over two (2) years in an advisory and legal capacity. The HR Partners Team has made themselves available with little notice when I’ve been in need of their expertise in an immediate situation.

They are available when I want to bounce an idea or will just listen when I need to work through a situation. They have assisted with phone screens, job descriptions, policies, unemployment, FMLA, HR audit, and so much more. They are very easy to work with and I have always felt they ‘really’ cared about assisting me and our organization. Their guidance has helped me grow personally in my knowledge which extends to being a better HR Professional for my employees and my company.

Thank you HR Partners!"
