No Written Support from Doctor
When you are trying to get on disability, it is important to have medical data to back you up. You want to have a written statement from your doctor explaining why you need disability and what your work-related disabilities are. It is important to have a doctor that will support your case.

Not Going to Regular Doctor Visits
When you are being considered for disability, you want to make sure that you stay up to date on all of your current medical appointments. It is important to keep all of your doctor and specialist visits.

Not Having the Right Medical Records
It is possible for your disability case to be denied because your doctor has not turned over all of your medical records. Find out what records have been turned in and what records are missing. A legal professional can make sure that all of the right paperwork has been disclosed.

Not Following Doctor’s Instructions
If you are in the process of appealing your disability benefits, you want to follow the instructions of your doctor as closely as possible. If you have been told that you should not lift a certain amount of weight, be sure that you do not try to carry objects that weigh more than you are supposed to lift. If you are supposed to be walking with crutches, do not forget them and go walking around like you do not need them. If someone were to see you acting as if you are not facing the difficulties that you are claiming, pictures could be taken or written statements could be given against you. Even if you are having a day where you are feeling better, do not overdo it. This could not only interfere with your disability case, but it could also cause you to injure yourself in the long run. If your doctor has given you strict orders, it is important to be safe and follow them outside of your home.

If you do not have the proper legal representation, you are going to feel alone in the disability process. You need someone who will have your best interests at heart. The right lawyer will be happy to evaluate your case and will be able to guide you every step of the way through the appeal process. Many people get turned down for disability because they do not have the right lawyer representing them. Find an experienced attorney that will fight for your rights.

Internet, email & other policies

The correct employment policies are an essential part of employee management.  In theory, employment policies will be drawn up to overcome any key issue that is likely to arise in the work place.

Internet use & email policies

For many businesses, the role that the internet and email are playing is increasing.  Policies should be put in place to make sure that employees use the internet and email as efficiently as possible.  A possible idea could be to block access to social networking sites and video sharing sites on all computers that are used at work. It is also advisable to include internet policies that reduce security risks, for an example, only allowing authorised employees to download and install software. Internet and email policies should also take steps to prevent any potential legal disputes. For example, employees must be aware they are not allowed to infringe other people’s copyrighted material, or use email to harass or defame anyone, including work colleagues.

Other policies

Most businesses will also have other policies, such as health & safety policies. These policies would be put into place to keep all employees safe at work and minimise risks from thing such as spillages, wires and sharp objects. A smoking policy is legally required. Employees must have a designated area where they employees can smoke, which is outside of the building/business premises.  Policies may also be driven by issues of practicality. An example of this is with employee expenses. Although in this case, it is up to the employer what rules they want to have in place, some policies such as those on sick pay must meet the minimum statutory requirements the employee is entitled to.

When drawing up policies that are legally required, it is advisable for an employer take seek legal aid to make sure that their policies are satisfying legal requirements.
