Performance Improvement Plans (PIPs)

Helping Protect Your Future Employment in Chicago

If you have recently received a performance improvement plan from your employer, or if you expect to receive one, it is important to understand what you will be agreeing to before you sign anything. A knowledgeable attorney can provide you with counsel that you know how to respond, possibly create more leverage, or work to obtain a severance package.

There are many times where an employee receives a performance improvement plan and thinks they do not have a problem or do not need legal counsel. However, many times these same employees end up without a job and without severance. At The Prinz Law Firm, we are knowledgeable about PIPs and how to address them appropriately - simply contact us to find out more.
