Performance Management and Capability Procedures: Making Them Work
Treading the precarious path between getting the best out of employees through performance management whilst avoiding claims for bullying or disability discrimination is one which employment practitioners and those they advise often shy away from. This course will address the principles and practicalities of capability procedures and performance management so as to equip delegates to offer proactive appropriate advice to clients. It will also include reference to the Government’s introduction of “protected conversations” and their impact on capability and performance procedures and the important issue of retirement and capability in light of the Seldon case. The course will address the following;
Distinguishing between capability and disciplinary issues
Drafting appropriate policies
Identifying a disability under the terms of the Equality Act 2010 and then how to proceed
Retirement and capability - how to proceed in light of Seldon and Equality Act 2010
Protected Conversations - what difference will they make?
Compromise agreements/Settlement agreement - understanding the principles and the ACAS guidelines
