    Hi There,
    If I have a signed PIP from an employee and the performance don’t improve can i terminate the employee at the end of the PIP term?
    I currently have a 2 months PIP in place with an employee located in Ontario

    Thank you,

    If an employee on a Performance Improvement Plan is not meeting the requirements of the plan, assuming you are meeting your requirements, then termination is the likely outcome. However, this should be a part of your termination policy. You should also have regular communication as part of the PIP, establishing the outcomes if performance doesn’t improve at the start, and have a regular cadence of status/progress meetings.
    A PIP only works if both parties want the outcome to be a better working relationship, if your employee doesn’t, or isn’t capable of that, then they are not a good fit for the organization.
