Performance Management can be difficult especially when dealing with an employee’s poor performance where you know that they are simply incapable of fulfilling the tasks and duties expected of them in their role. So, in this instance, are not really to blame.
An employee having the skills to complete a task but choosing not to do so is considered to be a matter of misconduct and should be addressed through the disciplinary procedure; whereas an employee knowing what to do, however, not having the skills to complete the task is a matter of performance and therefore should be addressed through the performance and capability procedure.
