Any record that is kept regarding an employee’s performance or conduct – whether they pertain to accomplishments or areas of concern. Documentation may consist of copies of actual work products, written statements by or about employees, and your notes of meetings with employees.
See examples of documentation.
The record you keep when investigating alleged misconduct is also considered documentation, but should be kept in a separate “investigation” file. See Section 8: Conducting Employee Investigations for more information regarding conducting investigations.
