Prinz attorney Christina Hynes Mesco suggests how employees can respond to being placed on a Performance Improvement Plan (or "PIP"). Employees should take into account the larger context of their workplace--is the PIP really about them or about cutting costs? Employees can also try to negotiate the terms of their PIP for maximum clarity and measurability. Christina also provides tips on what to include in written feedback. Following these guidelines will give employees a voice and some agency during a trying time in their careers.
