Performance Appraisal: Reducing Your Legal Liability Exposure

I've been writing a lot about performance appraisal lately - and that got me thinking.

There's one performance appraisal related resource that everyone needs to know about:


Alan Sklover is a New York-based attorney who has been writing and developing, by far, the best online resources for employees available. His blog is invaluable and it often addresses performance appraisal and the Performance Improvement Plans (PIP) that so often follow.

If you're an employee, you'll learn what to do. If you're in management, you'll learn how to avoid the legal, financial, cultural and operational problems that so often occur.

Frankly, there's no reason that organizations should mishandle the performance appraisal process to the extent that they do...which leads to employees feeling perfectly justified in taking action against them. And that leads to litigation.

If you read what Al has to say, you'll discover that there are ways to protect yourself if you're on the mishandled side and the organization if you're on the mishandling side.

Take a look. You'll be very glad you did.
