Plan for Success

3.  Performance Appraisals:

Practical: An opportunity to have a one-on-one discussion with an employee about            what they are doing well & what they need to work on. Nothing changes without this knowledge. If you want more of the good & less of the bad, this is the ticket.

Legal Perspective: An accurate, signed performance appraisal is the most valuable             legal defense you will have if a former employee files a claim against you. These             document(s) are proof of : 1-poor performance 2-your intent to communicate clearly            3-your willingness to work with the employee toward improvement 4- the former employee’s awareness of your concerns & the consequences if performance was not improved.
