Termination and Performance Management Guidelines

Learn best practices for writing effective performance documentation and implementing discipline and terminations.

In today's litigious environment, employers are increasingly at risk of being sued for wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment and retaliation by disgruntled current and former employees. Many times the difference between a defense verdict and a verdict in favor of the plaintiff hinges on how well management and human resources addressed and documented employee performance problems. This topic helps Human Resources professionals develop effective and proactive performance management systems. The material covered will include best practices for coaching and disciplining employees, drafting performance improvement plans and disciplinary documentation, a checklist for making defensible discipline and termination decisions.
