Training Overview

How do you write a PIP? Discover the legal requirements.

With too much work to get done, limited resources due to an ongoing pandemic, and a looming recession, you must address employees that are not performing at the level you expect.

Performance Improvement Plans are an excellent tool to manage problematic employees, giving them a chance to improve their performance. This last-chance document communicates expectations and the consequences of failure. Because those consequences can result in employment termination, you must know how to write ones that are legally-compliant.
