Ascontinuously stated the company bases its relationship with theemployees on the required performance benchmarks set. In case anemployee continuously fails to meet the set targets, he or she is maybe terminated with immediate effect.
Therefore,before any performance based termination is concluded, the followingprocess should be observed:
The supervisor or the manager is required to call the employee to discuss their performance and look for ways of improving this aspect of their work.
If the poor performance streak continuous, he or she is issued with a formal written warning to indicate the seriousness of the matter.
If the employee still does not improve, he or she is reported to the Human Resource Department for further evaluation. Here, the HR officials will look at the root problem of the poor performance trend and offer appropriate advice.
If the employee fails to improve, a meeting is summoned between him or her and their immediate supervisor or manager to discuss further action. Here, witnesses are invited to attend, both for the company and the concerned employee. This step is followed by an official, final verbal warning.
If the required performance is not achieved within a period of three months since decision made in the preceding step above is not achieved, the employee is reported to the Human Resource manager, who issues him or her with the termination letter.
Theemployee is allowed to seek legal redress if any step that ismentioned above is not followed to their satisfaction.
