Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have our own Employee Handbook, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have records of all previous and current HR related files, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to to allot our funds to better serve OCCUR's mission to serve Oakland's low-income community.

This project is essential because as a non-profit with limited funding, having a HR person onsite is not always in the budget. In addition to being a nonprofit, if there is an audit violation there a can be fees associated.
