Where an employee is underperforming this can be a very sensitive matter. It has to be managed and dealt with fairly, so understanding the legislation and your responsibilities as an employer is vital. There are a number of steps and strategies that you can take to work with them to improve their performance and, if that fails, it’s critical you are confident that you have followed all the processes and steps you are required by law to take.
We can work with you to create a performance agreement with the employee in question, manage their feedback with the goal of them achieving the required and agreed performance standard. If they still fail to perform we can advise you on the options available to you and support you in executing them.
