Book Description:

There’s no escaping problem employees. But with 101 prewritten disciplinary write-ups at a manager’s fingertips, there is a way to escape the headaches, anxiety, and potential legal trouble of performance review or counseling sessions.

Completely updated and covering the latest developments in employment law, the second edition of 101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems explains the disciplinary process from beginning to end and provides ready-to-use model documents—in print and on disk—that eliminate the stress and second-guessing about what to do and say. Expertly written, the write-ups cover every kind of problem—substandard work quality, absenteeism, insubordination, e-mail misuse, sexual harassment,drug or alcohol abuse, and more. Readers will also find new information on laying the ground work for a tidy dismissal; tying progressive discipline to annual performance reviews; formally addressing intermittent FMLA abuse; ways to avoid drafting documentation that could later be used against their company; and much more.

There is perhaps no more dreaded managerial task than communicating with an employee about a disciplinary problem, but this one-of-a-kind guide helps managers handle any scenario fairly, constructively, and, most importantly—legally.

From the Back Cover:

There is perhaps no more dreaded managerial task than ­communicating with an employee about a disciplinary problem. But when performance problems become apparent, you can’t just ignore them. You need to deal with them head-on.

Not sure of the best way to handle a particular situation? Turn to 101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems: A Guide to Progressive Discipline & Termination. Now completely revised and updated, the book has been the trusted resource for managers for more than a decade.

Expertly written, the guidebook covers dozens of problems likely to occur in the workplace, from substandard work quality, absenteeism, and poor attitude to sexual harassment, insubordination, and more.

Among the new write-ups found in this edition of the highly popular reference guide are how to deal with such problems as:

· Politically incorrect behavior

· Lack of leadership or trust

· Failure to communicate upward and/or follow through

· Lack of teamwork

· Use of Internet pornography

· Managerial misconduct and retaliation

· Failure to disclose a conflict of interest or personal relationship

· Violation of intellectual property rights

This completely updated edition also includes an appendix on SOX requirements and samples of how to deal with intermittent FMLA abuse.

Because writing someone up doesn’t always result in a correction of the problem at hand, readers will also find creative alternatives to formal disciplinary warnings that will help turn around those flying “just below the radar.” There are 18 sample termination letters included.

Also inside: advice for tying progressive discipline to annual performance reviews; ways to avoid drafting documentation that could later be used against your company; summary dismissals; and much more.

The book isn’t merely a reference, but a resource that managers can turn to any time they need to generate a corrective action notice. All 101 samples in the book are easily accessible for viewing via the companion CD-ROM and can be downloaded and customized with minimal effort. Simply put, you’ll no longer have to guess at what verbiage you should include in a write-up. This one-of-a-kind guide helps managers handle any scenario fairly, constructively, and—most important—legally.
