GENERAL DISCLAIMER: The Policy Templates and materials related to the SAWI Project are intended to assist employers, HR managers, and other decision-makers as they strive to improve workplace policies and practices related to more inclusive recruitment, retention, and promotion (RRP) within their organization. While we have made every attempt to provide templates relating to HR policies that are accurate and draw from a broad range of regional and international standards, it is not possible to include the technical detailing nor the discussion of everything necessary to ensure a gender-inclusive RRP working environment in a presentation of this nature. Thus, the information provided by the SAWI Project, its staff, and partners must be understood as a tool for addressing workplace policies, rather than an exhaustive statement of an employer's legal obligations, which are defined by statute, regulations, and standards of their local industry standards, and national legislative landscape. Likewise, to the extent that this information references practices or procedures that may enhance inclusive RRP, but which are not required by a statute, regulation, or standard, it cannot, and does not, create additional legal obligations. Finally, over time, regulators may modify rules and interpretations in light of new technology, information, or circumstances; to keep apprised of such developments, or to review information on a wide range of inclusive HR topics. All information, toolkits, templates, and other related material under the SAWI project is provided therefore as a free of charge  guide, and is, therefore "as is" without warranty of any kind of risk.
