"Parents Policy" Employee Communication at Cox Farms Rev
As a popular first job, Cox Farms is proud to employ so many
teenagers, and they are crucial to our success. We view this as an opportunity- and a responsibility- to help young
people develop skills that will help them succeed in the workplace. We also recognize that parents/guardians play
a crucial role in the employment of their children; we are very grateful for
the support they provide, from advice to encouragement to transportation. We encourage our younger employees to talk with
their families about their jobs and experiences here.
Your job and your family
are your responsibility. We will speak only to you, the employee, regarding
your job at Cox Farms. This includes work performance, schedules, paperwork,
compensation, and other issues. Concerns regarding work must be voiced by the
employee directly, rather than by the employee’s parents/guardians or other
family members. The only exception to this policy is if an employee under the
age of 18 has done something illegal, such as stealing money or violating our
drug and alcohol policy; if you are a minor and break the law at work, your
parents/guardians will be informed.
Additionally, we require all applicants and employees use their
own e-mail address, so that we can be sure that it is them, and not their
parent, that we are communicating with. Remember, this is your job and your
responsibility. Part of having a job is communicating with your employers.If
you’re running late for work or calling out sick, that needs to come from YOU,
not your parents. If you're confused about feedback you received, or you're
having a hard time finding a sub for your shift, or you have any other concerns
about your job, please take responsibility for initiating such conversations,
even though they might be difficult.
One way we demonstrate the respect we have for our employees is by
speaking with you directly. Make sure
your parents know that it is NOT appropriate for them to contact us on your
behalf or in regard to your application or employment; doing so puts your
potential employment at risk. You are responsible for informing your parents
about this policy, and for ensuring that they abide by it. This policy extends
to all family members, including siblings, spouses, adult children, etc. Even
if an employee has family members that work at Cox Farms, the employee must
handle their own employment-related concerns. One last thing: please don’t be
shy about introducing your parents! We
love meeting the proud parents of our employees, and we hope that you’re excited
to show off your job!
If you would like to discuss disability accommodations with us,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to include your
parents in that conversation, or if you would like their support/involvement in
that process, you are welcome to include them on that email.
