An employee who performs below an acceptable level may be placed on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP), which is designed to improve performance. Supervisors have the discretion to use performance improvement procedures to encourage employees to achieve the level of performance expected of them.
If you are placed on a PIP due to unsatisfactory performance, a merit increase will not be awarded if placed on a PIP at any time during the review period.
If the PIP is successfully completed and satisfactory performance is maintained, the employee may be eligible for an increase at the next date eligible following the missed merit increase. Therefore, anyone placed on a PIP regardless of successful completion of the plan’s goals will miss at least one merit increase.
For more details concerning performance improvement, refer to Performance Improvement policy available on Inet. For more information, contact Senior Employee Relations Advisor TeRena Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org or (972) 721-7704.
