Employee Legal Awareness
Employee Legal Awareness Day was established by an Australian lawyer, Paul Brennan. The day was created to emphasize the importance of legal education for workers and small businesses to reduce their risk of legal problems. However, Brennan also noted the importance of employees having access to and understanding their employer’s policies through an employee handbook. Though the holiday originated in Australia it is now celebrated throughout many countries. Today would be a great day for employers to review policies and procedures, and to make sure all employees are aware of their company’s policies and have a copy of their handbook.
