Pennsylvania Businesses with Employees
As a business owner with employees, there may come a time when you have to deal with a problem employee or even have to consider firing an employee. Here are some things that you can do to minimize any problems that could arise:
- Have an employee handbook that spells out the company's rules and regulations.
- Communicate with your employees about the things they're doing wrong as well as what they are doing well. If you have to fire an employee, you don't want the employee to be surprised about the reason for being fired.
- Document all conversations that you have with the employee.
- Do written performance evaluations at least annually and more frequently, if necessary, go over the evaluation with the employee, and keep a copy in the employee's personnel file.
