Everyone tells you to document employee behaviour, but do they tell you how to do it and why you should?
The absence of solid documentation is the single most common mistake employers make when handling employee performance, behaviour and discipline issues. Not properly documenting, or not documenting at all, can hurt employers in several ways.
Solid documentation can make the difference between a clean termination and EEOC lawsuit. Plus, it can make handling performance, behaviour, and discipline issues easy. When you fail to document–or document the wrong things, it puts the company at risk.
This 60 minute webinar with HR expert Suzanne Lucas will cover what to document, how to document and how performance improvement plans fit into this. Learning the DO’S and DON’TS of documentation will make your job easier.

Why Attend This Training:
Documentation can make or break a manager's ability to discipline, terminate, fairly promote, reward and recognize employees. Additionally, solid documentation will become an employer's best friend when an employee brings discrimination or other employment-related claims against the organization.
Possessing a solid understanding of the do's and don'ts of documenting employee performance, discipline, and behaviour is an essential tool for managers and supervisors because they need to make a serious effort to effectively record all events in the employment history of their employees - both positive and negative.
In this training, you will learn the importance of and how to create effective, bullet- proof documentation, recognize the pitfalls to avoid when documenting, the importance of the performance appraisal process, and understand documentation’s role in investigations and lawsuits.
