Hold a formal performance management hearing

Key points

  • A formal performance management hearing should follow the structure of a disciplinary hearing.
  • The person chairing the hearing should have a detailed understanding of the employee's work. This is likely to be the employee's manager or head of department.
  • At the hearing, the employee should have an opportunity to comment on whether or not they accept that they are underperforming, and to put forward any explanation for failure to improve.
