The overall aim of the capability policy is to assist employees who have difficulty achieving the required standards of job performance. The key objective is to encourage and support improvement rather than to punish failure.
The purpose of the capability procedure is to provide a fair and consistent process to enable the employee to achieve an acceptable standard of performance. The process involves progressive levels of review and target setting to establish the required standard of performance and to identify any training and support which can be given.
Continued failure to achieve the required standards of work performance will lead to the termination of employment although the Company will try to avoid this happening and may consider any suitable alternative positions that may be available.
