Employee Search Policy
Employers can carry out employee searches in order to stop theft or illegal activities within the organisation. The employers can adopt this policy if the employees' terms and conditions of employment allow for employee searches.
Employers can enforce this policy as an amendment to the employees' terms and conditions and it should be agreed in the same way as any variation of terms.
When an employee is searched, it does not mean that he/she is under suspicion. However, an employer can call the police if drugs are found on the employee during a search.
Search rules include:
- There should be no physical contact while searching.
- The search can only be made by a person of the same sex.
- The employee must allow the officer to carry out a search if the employee does not allow this the search cannot be made. However, the employer can take disciplinary action against the employee.
- The search should not be done on the basis of race, religion, culture, and sex.
This policy outlines a comprehensive procedure in order to carry out the search. This policy works as guidance for all employees.
This Employee Search Policy is in Microsoft Word format, written in plain English, easy to use and edit.
