Video transcript by a New York employment lawyer, suggesting that rebuttals to PIPs or corrective action plans are usually a good idea:
I’m Jonas Urba, a New York employment lawyer here with Employment Law Reality Check. Today we’re talking about PIPs. Sometimes known as corrective action plans (CAPs) or any type of final warning or written documentation that you are possibly going to be terminated. Make sure you read the document carefully. Never sign it unless you know exactly what you’re signing and be very careful about why this is happening to you. You need to evaluate that and sometimes talking with a lawyer brings that out. Is there discrimination? You may not realize that there is. But after you talk to some employment lawyers you might find out that there are reasons to object to the PIP and specifically identify in your rebuttal to the PIP or rebuttal to written warning, corrective plan, whatever they are calling it, in writing. So call some employment lawyers. Call me. I’m Jonas Urba, I serve the entire state of New York and I can be reached at (212) 731-4776. Attorney Advertising.
