Children at Work Policy
This Children at Work Policy outlines a company’s policy about employees bringing their
children to work. Under this policy, children are generally not allowed at the workplace.
However, under extreme circumstances, children may be allowed at the workplace
especially if the employee’s supervisor provides prior approval. This policy is ideal for
small businesses or other entities that want to maximize employee productivity and
efficiency at work by limiting employees’ abilities to bring their children to work.
CHILDREN AT WORK POLICY
We at ______________________ [Instructions: Insert the Company’s name] (“Company”)
have established this Children at Work Policy to provide formal guidance to employees
regarding Company’s position with respect to bringing children to the workplace.
1. Generally, No Children at the Workplace. Company places a premium on the
productivity of its employees, the efficiency of its operations, and its professional work
environment. For this reason, employees are not permitted to care for children at work. This ban
on bringing children to the workplace – other than for brief, informal visits or special occasions –
applies to all employees.
2. In Extraordinary Circumstances, Children May Be Brought to The Workplace. Company
acknowledges that, in certain extraordinary circumstances, it is unavoidable and an employee has
no choice but to bring his/her child to work.
a. Request. In each such case, the employee must first contact their supervisor as
soon as possible to discuss the situation and obtain permission to have the child accompany the
employee to the workplace.
b. Approval. The supervisor shall consider, among other things: the age of the child,
how long the child needs to be present, the work environment in employee’s area, any possible
disruption to employee and employee’s co-workers’ productivity. Should the supervisor find that
the child’s presence will not create a safety risk or seriously diminish or otherwise adversely
affect Company’s productivity or efficiency, the supervisor may grant the employee permission
to bring his/her child to the workplace.
c. Child’s Time at the Workplace. For the duration of the time that the child is at
Company’s workplace, the child will be the sole responsibility of the employee and must be
accompanied and be under the direct supervision of employee at all times. The employee shall
use employee’s best efforts to ensure that his/her child does not create a safety risk or seriously
diminish or otherwise adversely affect any of Company’s employees’ productivity or efficiency.
All employees agree to indemnify and hold Company harmless for any harm to their child that
occurs at the workplace.
