Lawful Performance Evaluations Whitepaper


Jul 29, 2014

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) received over 7% more employment discrimination and unlawful harassment charges in 2010 than it did in 2009 – raising 2010's total to an unprecedented 99,922 charges.

Performance evaluations are one of the most powerful weapons HR can use to demonstrate that the organization had legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for termination or other adverse action against an employee or unsuccessful job applicant.


This white paper by Workplace Answers' subject matter expert Lynn Lieber, Esq. covers:

  • The importance of timely, consistent and accurate performance evaluations
  • The “process” of performance appraisal
  • Correctly drafting the appraisal itself
  • Including organizational goals and standards in the evaluation
  • Negative impact of stereotyping during the appraisal process
  • Conducting the actual appraisal meeting for maximum impact
  • Using employee performance evaluations as a coaching and goal measuring tool

Training is the key to preventing discrimination and harassment claims.
