The Key’s to Documenting Performance
We’ve said it to our managers too many times to count – “Have you documented it?” Far too often, the answer is “no.” As we know, proper documentation is crucial for a myriad of employee relations issues. As importantly, when it comes to discrimination, retaliation and other wrongful discharge claims, legal liability often turns on the documentation. But it’s not enough simply to document, document, document. Poor documentation is as dangerous as no documentation. The key is not only what you say but also how and when you say it.
This seminar focuses on the legal and human resource issues implicated in disciplinary documentation. Because these kinds of flaws are common to performance appraisals, this seminar also will examine the necessity of, and common mistakes seen in, the performance appraisal process.
