Document, Document, Document! (HR)

We’ve said it to our attorneys and 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. But it’s not enough simply to document, document, document. Poor documentation is as dangerous as no documentation. The key is not only what is written, but also how and when it is delivered. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Focus on writing proper documentation
  • Determine the legal and human resource issues implicated in disciplinary documentation.
  • Examine the necessity of, and common mistakes seen in, the performance appraisal process
