Emergency Communications Policy

Author: XpertHR Editorial Team

When to Use

In the event of an emergency, it is critical that employees are aware of how the situation affects them, their office and their workday. Whether it be inclement weather, a natural disaster or other crisis, an employer should have mechanisms in place that will enable employees to obtain the latest communications on the emergency. These may include remote access to the employer's network and a local telephone number with an updated recorded message on the status of the emergency.

An employer should consider implementing this policy to provide guidance on the communication channels available to employees in an emergency.
