Does your workforce stop working when the world cup is on? Do your employees call in sick in around major sporting events?
If so, you may need a Major Sporting Events Policy in your documentation.
You don't want to ruin your employees' fun but at the same time you also need to plan for HR issues.
For example if everyone wants time off to watch a big game you may need to specify a minimum staffing level - otherwise you could be seriously understaffed.
Then it's possible that last-minute sick days coincide with an important fixture and you suspect the illness is not genuine and are tempted to put a ban on sporting events altogether.
But no one wants to be a bad sport and damage employee relations.
There is another option.
A balance to strike!
