When you are managed and appraised

Every organisation manages the performance of its workers to make sure they are getting their job done in the way that the employer wants them to.

Your employer may be managing your performance formally through an appraisal scheme, with regular ‘line management’ meetings and annual reports.

Or they may do it informally, just by talking over your performance as you carry out your job.

Many organisations will have a mixture of both formal and informal management and appraisal.

Your employer must avoid unlawful discrimination in the way that they manage and appraise your performance.
