How much time must we give employees to sign off on a new company policy—one day, 2 days, more?
Unless your company policies or contracts state otherwise, I’m not so sure you have to get them to sign off on changes at all.
There’s no statute or regulation that specifically says an employee must sign off on a new company policy before it can take effect. To the extent such a requirement exists, it would have to come from the contract or company policies themselves. In addition, if you’ve made it a practice to get employee sign-off on new policies in the past, you may be required to continue doing so in the future.
These principles apply not just to the need to get employees to sign-off on policy changes but also how much time you must give them to do so.
