Documentation of Employee Discussions is all Important

As with law, the dictum for management is this: What is not documented does not exist. One can look back at the age-old Latin adage to this effect -Verba Volant, Scripta Manent, meaning “what is said flies, what is written stays”. This just about summarizes the need for documentation in organizations.

Documentation is at the heart of organizations, because when employees take an organization to court for some strong reason such as termination -and there is no dearth of such lawsuits -documentation is the decider in most cases. Documentation of employee conversations is a major tool of evidence for law courts. This is the clincher in many high profile and low profile cases.

Deciding factor in litigations

Documentation can win or lose lawsuits, depending on which side of the fence the management is. There are cases where organizations have had to shell out millions of dollars either because documentation was present, or it was not.

Yet, the need for documentation is paramount, because it is the most crucial tool that stand scrutiny in court cases. It is what attorneys and judges look for more than anything else. As seen in the beginning, any event that lacks evidence is as good as a nonevent.

It is a habit that needs to be drilled into employees, but is admittedly difficult to inculcate in the employee mind-set. Not only do employees need to be taught to document; they also need to made to understand what needs to be documented, and how.

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
