Do's & Don'ts of Documenting Employee Performance, Behavior and Discipline

Added 3 months ago by Joseph Wilcox on Health and Medicine
Documenting employee behavior and performance is critical because memories aren't perfect. Lack or absence of solid documentation is the single most common mistake employers make when handling discipline or terminations. What if you need to justify an employment decision or termination long after it occurs?

Not properly documenting can hurt you in unemployment compensation disputes, workers' compensation cases, and other legal matters. Good records, on the other hand, can mean the difference between winning and losing a lawsuit.
