The FAL requires that the human resources policy include the steps and standards for the hiring of the First Nation’s employees, consultants, and contractors.
This policy must include the steps to make sure:
- someone hired as an employee or consultant or contractor has the skills, experience, qualifications, and abilities for the job
- all parts of the hiring process are fair and practical. This includes providing standards for choosing an applicant and evaluating all applicants in the same way. It also includes using rating processes, reference checks, and hiring based on excellence
The FAL also requires that the human resources policy includes the steps and standards for letting go of the First Nation’s employees, with or without cause.
