Австралия (трудовые отношения) Как организовать на предприятии процесс по повышению исполнительности работников

Workplace Bulletin
Dear Reader,
You might be tempted to simply dismiss an employee who is not performing to the standards your business requires.
But you need to be careful before you decide to go down this path...
Without a proper performance management process in place, you could leave yourself vulnerable to a legal challenge.
Even if you discuss your expectations with your employee – and even if you’ve issued them with a warning – you still need to make sure you’ve done everything you can to help improve their performance, otherwise a dismissal may be considered unfair.
By undertaking an effective performance management process and implementing an improvement plan, you may even find there are genuine reasons for the poor work rate that can be rectified.
The easiest way to make sure your process is reasonable and fair is to follow the steps outlined in the 49-page eBook, Managing Underperformance.
This important resource explains in detail where you stand when you decide an employee’s work is falling short of the mark.
In it, workplace law expert and Employment Law Practical Handbook Editor-in-Chief Charles Power guides you through the performance management process and provides a number of practical checklists and step-by-step guides to assist you, including:
  • 6 steps you need to take when developing a performance improvement plan
  • 7 items to check to make sure your improvement plan is fair
  • What you need to check to ensure a dismissal is procedurally fair
  • A 7-point checklist to guide you through evaluating an employee’s performance
Of course there will be circumstances when the issue of performance can’t be resolved and dismissal does become necessary.
Managing Underperformancealso provides (in downloadable, editable and printable format) the legal documentation you’ll need in this situation, including:
  • Letter to Propose an Agreed Separation
  • Performance Improvement Plan template
  • Letter to Accompany Proposed Performance Improvement Plan
  • Letter Notifying an Employee of a Meeting to Discuss Potential Dismissal
  • Letter Placing an Employee on Gardening Leave
  • Staff Exit Form
  • Statement of Service
  • Letter of Dismissal with Payment in Lieu of Notice
Having to deal with the issue of employee underperformance can be uncomfortable as an employer. But it’s important that you confront these matters swiftly and that you carefully consider the legal rights of your employees.
Managing Underperformance clearly explains where you stand and what you should do to effectively and legally manage an employee’s performance.
