Do you have a paper-shuffler working for you?
You know that person…
· Always busy but never meets deadlines…
· Always making excuses for why he doesn't meet company targets…
· He doesn't meet his KPI's…
· And he's constantly making costly mistakes…
The next logical step is to get rid of him and get someone who can do the job. But watch out, that could cost you BIG at the CCMA!
So what can you LEGALLY do?
Did you pay employees bonuses and others not?
If the answer is 'yes', then what was your reason for this decision?
If you believe that you can provide reasons for your decision, you'll then need to honestly ask yourself whether those reasons are truly justifiable.
In other words, you must make sure:
· The decision ISN'T, in any way, connected to race, age, gender, marital status, or any other discriminatory ground for that matter; and
· Your decision is objective. For example, if it's based on 'non-performance', then you should be able to provide supporting documentation, as well as the evidence that you operate a performance-based bonus system, as well as clear evidence of what your performance targets are to qualify for a performance bonus.
