Performance falling short? Offer 2nd chance with new boss before terminating
from Business Management Daily
Sometimes an employee who seems destined to fall short of performance expectations blames his problems on a biased supervisor. Even if an investigation reveals that such claims seem to have no basis in fact, it may be prudent to give the employee a second chance to succeed under a different supervisor. If, after a reasonable trial period, the second supervisor also believes the employee has performance problems that he can’t or won’t fix, then it’s OK to go ahead and terminate. Such an employee will have a hard time winning any subsequent lawsuit, since he had an additional chance to prove himself.
