Capability and Performance

At Fairmont Legal, we understand that managing employee capability and performance is crucial to the  success and growth of your business. Our expert team of employment solicitors is here to guide you through the complex landscape of performance management, ensuring that your business thrives while adhering to UK employment laws and regulations.

What is Capability and Performance?

Employee capability and performance refer to the ability of your workforce to meet the expectations and standards set by your company. Capability issues typically arise from an employee’s inability to perform their job competently due to a lack of skills or qualifications. Performance issues, on the other hand, pertain to an employee’s inability to meet expected productivity and quality standards despite having the necessary skills.

Monitoring and Assessment

Our team will work closely with you to establish robust performance  management systems that include regular reviews, clear objectives, and constructive feedback. We’ll ensure that your employees have the tools and support they need to excel while keeping an eye on their progress and addressing any issues promptly.

Fair Dismissal and Legal Compliance

In cases where capability or performance issues persist despite the necessary efforts taken, we’ll guide you through the fair dismissal process in line with UK employment laws. We’ll help you  create a clear paper trail, provide employees with the opportunity to improve and ensure that any dismissal is lawful and justifiable.

Failing to address capability and performance issues correctly can lead to legal complications, such as unfair dismissal claims and costly tribunal proceedings. Moreover, neglecting these issues can adversely affect team morale, productivity, and ultimately, your business’s bottom line.
