Why is documentation such a problem?

  1. It's time-consuming,
  2. It’s not an immediate issue,
  3. Managers don’t know what to write, and
  4. No one’s checking to see whether it gets done.

When documentation shows a clear record of poor performance or poor behavior, and shows that an employee had ample opportunity to improve, companies can mount a strong defense to a lawsuit for discrimination or wrongful discharge.

But, when documentation is scant, sloppy, or — worst case — nonexistent, defending yourself is nearly impossible.
