Managing Performance in 2021: In The Office or In The Home

None of us needs to be reminded of what kind of year 2020 was! The challenges we have faced are new and complicated. One thing that has remained constant, however, is our need to manage our employees’ performance, whether they are working from our law office or their office at home. As we know, proper documentation and managing our employees with empathy are crucial for a myriad of employee relations issues.  As importantly, when it comes to discrimination, retaliation and other wrongful discharge claims, legal liability often turns on the documentation.  But it’s not enough simply to document, document, document.  Poor documentation is as dangerous as no documentation. The key is not only what you say but also how and when you say it. Empathy is paramount and has never been more important than it is today. This session focuses on the legal and human resource issues implicated in disciplinary documentation, with attention also paid to managing a remote workforce.  Because these kinds of flaws are common to performance appraisals, this seminar also will examine the necessity of, and common mistakes seen in, the performance appraisal process.
