Slightly Off Subject But Need Some Guidance

Ok this is not a copy text question persae, but I have been tasked with creating a 'Company Software Policy', to incorporate the following...
1. Authorised Software. what's allowed and what to do if new software is required
2. Acceptable Use Policy , for software and equipment, including reasons why certain use is prohibited
3. Personal computer use
This is to form an addendum to peoples employment contracts and must not be longer than one side of A4 paper written in layman's English.
I'm stumped, I'm no copy writer for simple websites and now i'm expected to write company policy, I have no experiece or training in these matters and have no idea where to even start or how to formulate the document.
I've found this info http://www.businessl...emId=1073791960
But it's all a bit overwhelming and not knowing what to read or what not to is going to confuse matters more.
Any help someone can give pointing me to resources that might help me formulate this document and ensure it meets employment law requirments and I go through proper consultation process within company law would really be appreciated. (which seems to be a major point raised on the link above)
If anyone has a template or structured process I could follow that really would be sweet.
Here's hoping someone can help.

I think you need to tell them that this is a job for their company lawyer, not you, imo.

However, we have no Human Resources (Personell) department, and they won't pay for a lawyer to do the work.
If it has ANYTHING to do with IT, I have to do it... here is a list of my 'daily duties' , that doesn't even include all the projects, tasks and additional system coding and web coding i have to do let alone writing company policy...
System Admin / Maintenance / Updates
SQL Server Admin / Maintenance / Updates
Exchange Server Admin / Maintenance / Updates
Email Management & Archiving
Domain Admin / Maintenance / Updates
Licencing Maintenance / Renewals
Web Server Admin / Maintenance / Updates
New Member Accounts
Leaving Member Accounts
Perform Kitchen Duties via Rota
Members Area Admin
Members Area Coding / Debugging / Updates
Database Coding / Debugging / Updates
Webmastering / Updates & Amendments (for @ 10 company websites)
SEO / SEM
White Labelled Website Creation / Maintenance / Removal / Webmastering (for @ 30 websites)
POP3 Email Service Maintenance / Renewals

I guess there comes a time when you just have to say, I can't do it, i'm not trained or experienced in this field and if you want me to do it then you have to pay for training. What else can I say?

I would try to limit my searches only to same country sites (or maybe Commonwealth sites if you're in the Commonwealth). U.S. law tends to differ in many respects from UK and Commonwealth law.

Legal policies are no different, it's still sales BS, just coated in a nice legaslative wrapper!
