Employment Law 2 Employment Law at Parker Hannifin Parker spends a good deal of time in developing policies and procedures which clearly addresses the issues related to Title V11 and employee law. By communicating, and defining, the relationship between Parker as a corporation, and the employee, Parker avoids potential Title VII liabilities associated with the unfair treatment of employees. Parker communicates these policies and procedures by providing all employees with a ‘Code of Ethics” handbook. This handbook provides employees with the information required to understand the Parker employee- corporation relationship. They clearly define the responsibilities for the employee to the corporation and the corporation to the employee. The corporate Human Resources department has the responsibility to ensure that the handbooks are update to date with the current employment laws. The liabilities associated with the torts against, or unfair treatment of, employees could be significant. The best defense against Title VII issues, and torts against employees, is to clearly defined policies and procedures that addresses employment law issues. The majority of the Parker workforce do not have an employment contract, the employment terms is considered at- will employment. Since employees do not have a clear contract, Parker conducts annual ethics, and corporate compliance, training which communicates what the employees responsibilities are to the corporation and the corporations responsibility to the employee. The employee must sign a statement that he or she has received the training and agrees to meet the terms specified in the ethics and compliance handbook. By doing so the employee, and Parker, have a signed contract even though the employment is at-will. At Parker, like any job, understanding what duties one will be performing, and how one will be compensated, are usually the first questions asked but not everyone understands that employment is not guaranteed.
