Any items found on the worksite should be delivered to the human resource office where they will be available for claiming. To make a claim, an employee must first describe the attributes of the item without seeing the item. Clearly this process discourages inaccurate or false claim requests.
In the event an item is not claimed within 10 days, the human resource manager will make a posting of such item on employee notice boards. If the item is not claimed within 30 days, it will first be offered to the finder, and if refused will be discarded.
Commentary (if any):
WARNING: Do NOT simply adopt a policy or add it to your handbook or manual without consulting with a qualified HR professional or employment lawyer. A sample policy may not be proper or even lawful in your particular situation. You’ve been warned.
