Book Title: 101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems
Author: Paul Falcone
Year Published: 1998
Helpful to: Managers and Human Resource Managers
Brief Review: No manager relishes the task of disciplining problem employees--but it's a task that every manager must face at one time or another. One of the toughest parts of the job is actually writing up the disciplinary session--a critical requirement for both legal protection and clear employee communication. Now "101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems" makes this job easier by providing ready-to-go model documents that cover every kind of problem you can imagine--substandard work quality, absenteeism, insubordination, sexual harassment, email misuse, drug or alcohol abuse, and more. "101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems" also includes a diskette in Microsoft Word containing all the sample documents.
Reviewers Comments: I find this book to be an excellent HR resource for many situations. Not only does it provide you with clear and concise phrases and templates, but it doesn't leave out the all important element of communicating employer expectations to the employee. All too often, disciplinary action focuses on what the employee should refrain from doing, leaving out any clear guidance or directives on what you expect the employee to do to improve the situation. Mr. Falcone provides managers with clear guidance and support when dealing with progressive discipline. Brenda Tassava, CVPM
