Below you’ll find several sample child- and family-friendly workplace policies from some of Impact Monadnock’s Business Ambassadors. These are intended to provide general examples of how other employers in the region have implemented family-friendly policies. As neither Impact Monadnock nor its Business Ambassadors provides legal advice, however, each employer wishing to implement a family-friendly policy should review the policy with their legal counsel to ensure the policy properly fits their situation and specific legal requirements.
