Performance Management of employees, if not conducted properly can often lead to stress and claims of bullying. Employers often use independent medical practitioners to assess the condition of an employee. This is good practice as in general the longer an employee is on stress leave, the greater the probability of a legal case. Other potential cases evolving from ineffective performance management of employees are unfair dismissal and discrimination.
Therefore, it is imperative that employers follow best practice in regards performance management in order to avoid lengthy and costly legal disputes.
