Promoting, Firing, and Performance Evaluations

The sites in this section explore some of the more enjoyable parts of being a manager, and some of the most disconcerting. That being said, the practices of evaluating employee performance and promoting or firing accordingly are still fine arts that should be researched in advance.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Be aware when researching on your own for performance evaluations that you may come across professor or college faculty performance evaluations. If this isn’t what you’re looking for, keep in mind that a university Web site contains an “.edu” in the URL, and skip that site.
  • Before you terminate anyone’s employment, you should know your legal rights as well as the employee’s rights. The section of this guide on Management Legal Concerns should help.
  • If you are conducting your own search, bear in mind that different Web sites use different words and phrases to refer to employee termination. Changing your search terms from “laying off” to “firing” to “terminating,” for example, will yield sometimes drastically different results.
