The performance appraisal process is a critical component of any organization’s HR function, documenting whether, and to what extent, employees are meeting the core expectations for their roles. When performance reviews do not identify those expectations or provide meaningful feedback, the company could face liability risk from current or former employees.
If the organization does not follow performance management best practices or if a supervisor makes a statement that could be viewed as discriminatory or harassment, risk exposure can multiply exponentially.
HR managers must ensure supervisors understand their roles in the performance management cycle — including conducting effective performance reviews. Doing so can mitigate the company’s risk of legal liability.
The HR Manager’s Legal Alert for Supervisors newsletter — by Institute of Business Publications — provides the latest performance appraisal articles. Subscribing to this twice-monthly e-newsletter offers a proactive way to help supervisors meet their responsibilities related to employee performance management.

Lower Risk Begins With a Trusted Performance Review HR Newsletter
Most HR managers understand the legal risks inherent in ineffective performance management processes. However, HR managers simply cannot be part of, or even effectively oversee, every employee’s performance appraisal — even in small organizations. That’s why it is critical for supervisors to stay abreast of news and legal developments related to employee performance appraisals.
