Protecting Employers Since 1985
Documenting Employee Performance Issues
While doing a google search on a different subject, I came across a well-done, short and simple six-point listing on how to document employee issues. This six-point listing is as follows:
- Stick to the facts and underline expectations.
- Emphasize behavior.
- Align records of past performance.
- Describe proof of misconduct.
- Identify and present consequences.
- Meet in person and get a signature.
I was struck by how our Wessels Sherman employee counseling form leads you to follow these recommendations. We have provided it to clients for decades and it works well. Click here to see it and you are free to use it.
