Re: WORKSHOP ON PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT, 28 – 29 NOVEMBER 2019, FRINGILLA LODGE, CHISAMBA
The Employment Code Act No.
3 of 2019 requires that An employer shall ensure that there exists in the

harassment policy, performance management policy, an HIV and AIDS Policy, a
grievance procedure and code of conduct. The Act further provides that an
employer shall bring to the attention of each employee under the employer’s
direction the policy.
In addition the Act has also
included poor performance as one of
the valid reasons for termination of employment relationship but this requires
that the employee must be guided on his/her performance expectations/targets which
the employer must assess in order to determine the performance of the employee.This
process requires companies to formulate and effectively implement a sound
performance Management system.
