Employee Orientation Checklist

EMPLOYEE ORIENTATION CHECK LIST

 

Use these guidelines to conduct a simple yet effective employee orientation, ensuring that all important employment practices are communicated to employees. It is also a good workplace practice to regularly re-orientate employees every year or when changing employment practices in your Employee Handbook or Human Resources Manual.

 

Keep this Orientation Checklist on an employee's files for later use, for example, to demonstrate to the CCMA or Labour Court that employment practices have been communicated to a particular employee.
