Performance and development appraisal policy

Capability policy

The capability policy applies when an employee is failing to carry out their duties in a satisfactory manner due to capability. Where we do not apply this policy, we will put in place an informal development plan. The aim of this is to ensure that the employee's performance level improves.  

If there is no improvement, we will apply the formal capability procedure

We may withhold an increment as a formal action under the capability policy. We will not withhold increments for more than a year if their performance improves to the required level.
