Performance & capability issues

If your employer thinks you're not doing your job properly, Tees can help. We're in your corner, and can guide you through the process.

There aren’t many things more stressful than someone telling you that you’re not doing your job properly. If your employer questions your performance or capability at work, you may feel concerned and anxious about the future. You may also feel isolated and unsure of where to turn for help. You’ll want to have someone on your side who’ll be able to advise you and support you at what could be a very difficult time.

How we can help you

Our specialist employment team have a wealth of experience in dealing with performance and capability cases. Getting expert advice will help you to feel more confident about the process you’re facing and help you to feel more in control. We understand the system, and your legal rights, inside out. Our employment solicitors will review every angle, and ensure your employer is treating you fairly.

There are some practical steps we can take straight away, to help you immediatley. We’ll look at whether your employer has followed their own procedure so far for example. If they haven’t, or if they’ve treated you unfairly during the investigation, we’ll help you to challenge their actions.

Practical support

We’ll give you practical advice about how you can prepare for any hearings and how you can respond to allegations against you. It could be that there are health issues which are affecting your performance at work. We can propose adjustments your employer to make to allow you to move forward.

How we work

When you come to us for help in a capability or performance case, we’ll put you at the centre of everything we do. We’ll listen carefully to your story to get the full picture of what has happened. We’ll use our experience and knowledge to advise you of where you stand and what your options are. We’ll help you to manage your case with your employer and we’ll work quickly and efficiently to reach a satisfactory resolution. We talk in plain language, so you’ll always understand what’s going on and we’ll answer any questions that you’ve got.

Sorting things out

With our specialist advice and support, you're in the best possible position to sort things out at work. But we’ll be there to support you, whatever happens. So if you can’t sort things out yourself with our help, we can advise on whether you have a case to issue an employment tribunal claim against your employer. If you do, we can help you to manage that as well. Our aim will always be to get the best possible outcome for you.
