  • Kansas law does not generally require employee performance appraisals in private employment. There are some exceptions for employers such as hospitals, mental health centers, and child-placing agencies. See Performance Appraisals Requirements Under Kansas Law.
  • Kansas imposes liability for damages caused by the negligent hiring and retention of an employee when the employer knew or should have known that the employee was unfit or incompetent. See Negligent Hiring and Retention.
  • Classified state employees are generally entitled to two performance evaluations before an employer takes an adverse action against them. See State Employees.
