INFORMATION
Training Overview

Are some of your employees performing poorly? Learn how to conduct and document evaluations legally.

Whether part of an annual review program or due to concerns about the economy and the possibility of impending layoffs, employee evaluations are a critical tool to improve productivity, address performance issues and recognize those employees that are going above and beyond.

You must carefully complete employee evaluations to ensure they comply with all applicable laws and regulations and don't violate your existing policies, procedures, handbook provisions, or individual contracts. Failure to do so could lead to costly legal battles, financial penalties, and irreparable damage to your company's reputation.
