5 HR Practice Management Documents to Have in Your Practice
A time sheet is good for tracking your staff’s schedules and it is especially useful if you pay your staff by the hour. In our template, you’ll find a tab on the bottom of the excel sheet for each week of the month so that you can keep track of all their hours in one spot.
Leave Request Form
Do you have a policy in place to ensure that leave and vacation days are consistent and fair for all your staff members? Make all vacation, sick day, time off, and holiday policies clear to your staff. Use the template as a standard process to request days off and make sure you include a recording system to help you keep track of everybody's remaining days off.Reimbursement Sheets
How does your office keep track of expenses paid by your staff? Miscellaneous expenses like lunch treats, office supplies, and gift cards may be a small amount, but they should be tracked and reimbursed to staff members who had to pay for it out-of-pocket at the time of purchase. Have your staff fill out this simple expense sheet and make sure to include their reimbursement by the next payroll.
Employee Grievance Form
Employee grievances are a serious matter and should be treated with quick action. It should also be well documented to make sure that both management and the staff member can mutually agree on a solution to fix the problem. The template provides two parts of the form: one for the staff member to explain the situation, and the other for management to follow up on the issue to make sure that it is resolved.
Labor Law Posters
As an employer, federal and state laws require you to clearly display official labor and employment posters detailing federal and applicable state labor laws. These posters are provided to employers at no cost. Check out this table to see which posters are required to be displayed in your practice.
