Performance Improvement Plan or Resign
Question Details: Just to be brief, at a forum my manager and director met with my husband to discuss and unknown subject matter. At an offsite function, the director told him in the meeting that he had two choices because he just didn't fit the perception of a salesmen....either go in a PIP or resign by the end of May. Now two days later, my husband request his evaluations, PIP and concerns that have occurred since his evaluation in July 2017. The director tells him via text that this is an urgent matter and a decision must be made by the end of the week. This is an employee that has been with the company 13 years and he is asked to decide whether he wants to get on a PIP and he has not been counseled on any inequity in his work in the past. There is no PIP prepared and I am trying to understand what exactly does he need to improve upon. How is it possible to meet with an employee, tell them either go on an unattainable PIP or resign by May is legal, ethical or not considered bullying on the job? Thanking you in advance for your time.
