Bless their hearts, several employees are raising money for charitable causes this holiday season. However, they are soliciting contributions from co-workers during working hours. This has become disruptive, and a few employees have complained to HR. It’s probably too late to do anything this year, but I would like to develop a policy regulating charitable activities at work. What should such a policy cover? Does anyone have sample policy language I can adapt? Thanks.—Dan, Illinois
