Human resources policy documents, non-disclosure agreements, sexual harassment prevention training, workplace safety manuals, corporate mission statements, and other information that employees are required to read on a regular basis, even though the information has little or no bearing on 1) the reality of the workplace, or 2) the actual job function the employees perform.
