OGR Stock Denton LLP Partner, Susan Bernstein, has been featured in the Guardian this week as part an article on dealing with a staff member that is not up-to-scratch.
Susan is quoted in the article, discussing the steps that employers can take when dealing with an under-performing staff member:
“If the poor performance is due to carelessness, negligence or laziness rather than incompetence or aptitude, such as inflexibility, it could be more appropriate to treat it as a misconduct rather than a capability issue.
“Ignoring the poor performance of an employee can destroy morale within a team and it may even be dangerous in a hazardous workplace if it puts employees at risk of injury.”
