Don’t confuse policies with contracts

Many employers refer to their policies and procedures in their employment contracts. However, to reduce the risk of a breach of contract claim, they should avoid making them terms of the contract. For this reason the HR Advance Contract of Employment expressly excludes the incorporation of policies. 
Very small businesses may regard putting a bunch of policies together as onerous and unnecessary. However, court cases have held that even the smallest businesses should have policies in place, particularly in relation to Anti-Discrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity (offered by HR Advance).
