How to write and legally implement a performance improvement plan

In this 75-minute live and interactive online training, you will learn how to:

  • Give specific, legally safe feedback in difficult situations and in a WFH environment

  • Document performance and behavior problems appropriately and legally in today's world

  • Craft efficient and legally sound performance improvement plans (PIPs)

At some point, your personnel documents could become trial evidence. How confident are you in your compliance?

Discipline and terminations are two of the biggest flashpoints for legal trouble with your employees, and you're in real danger if you don't have the correct documentation to support your decisions.

But these days (with so many people working remotely), it's hard for managers to provide legally appropriate feedback, consequences, and follow-through to employees displaying poor performance or toxic behavior.

Performance improvement plans are an excellent tool to manage problematic employees, giving them a chance to improve their performance. This last-chance document communicates expectations and the consequences of failure. Because those consequences can result in employment termination, you must know how to write legally-compliant plans.

On Thursday, March 2, gather your HR and management teams to discover the steps and best practices for legally writing and implementing employee performance improvement plans.
