Performance Appraisals: New Requirements and Best Practices

October 15, 2014 at 2:00pm ET
Duration 1.0 hours

Conducting effective performance appraisals is an integral part of an organization's performance management system and can be instrumental in meeting business goals. However, what is effective for one organization may be unsuccessful for another based on corporate size, management structure and philosophy.

Learn how recent legislative changes at the state and federal levels affect how performance appraisals may be conducted. Proper recordkeeping and documentation practices will also be discussed with specific examples. Practical examples of real-life cases will be presented in order to fully grasp the liability risks inherent to certain situations. For example:

  • What happens when a supervisor adheres to the "Don't put anything negative in writing!" approach to recordkeeping?
  • How do performance appraisals relate to retaliation claims?
  • What information should be communicated when managing poor performers?

Join us for this informative presentation to learn how to keep your performance management process current, collaborative and compliant.
