Poor work performance is a form of incapacity. As with misconduct dismissals, the employee usually failed to meet a certain performance standard or level required by the employer. However, the fact that the level of performance required by the employer is not being met, is not due to the employee being negligent or intentional in the performance of his duties – it is due to the employee’s incapability to perform the task, or perform at the level required by the employer.
Poor work performance can be difficult to deal with if the correct procedures aren’t followed. ProFile assists employers in dealing with incapacity to ensure procedural fairness.
