Course Description:
Timing can be everything. Consider this situation: Manager plans to meet with one of her direct reports on Friday afternoon to discuss ongoing performance issues and give her a final warning. On Friday morning, the employee calls her manager and informs her that she will not be at work on Friday due to a medical issue and will be applying for a leave of absence. What are the manager’s choices? Contact the employee while on leave to provide the performance feedback and run the risk of a retaliation claim or an FMLA interference claim? Delay the corrective counseling and run the risk that it diminishes the validity of the underlying performance issues because they were not promptly addressed? Either situation presents risk, but it is risk that can be managed through careful planning and a prompt and consistent response.
This 2-½-hour seminar will review steps that should be taken to effectively implement performance management even in the face of employee medical issues. Using a series of hypothetical scenarios, attendees will consider the extent to which an employer may maintain its performance standards for employees with medical issues, the extent to which accommodations must be provided to address those performance issues as well as at what point an employer may take action for continued performance deficiencies. This seminar will also emphasize ways to reduce the potential for a retaliation claim by consistently treating similarly situated individuals, conducting a prompt investigation of employee concerns regarding failure to properly accommodate and timely utilizing performance management.
