It has to be one and a half page for each question and total of 5 pages.

Question 1:

The book doesn’t do a very good job describing what kind of “files” should be kept on every employee. It suggests that one file will do. I disagree. I think every employer should keep five (5) very distinct files on each employee, one being a very generic “HR” file that contains everything that doesn’t go into the other four very specific files.

Question 2:

Do some research and identify the most common mistakes employers make in performance reviews. Why do some managers hate the process? What should employers do to ensure that performance review are meaningful and useful if the employer gets sued?

track the progress of the employee to determine whether they are improving or they are not
making any progress in their performance.
The personal information file is also important to the human resource department in
getting to know their employees, along with their background. Through the personal information
file, the human resource department gets to understand issues such as whether the employee has
had issues with the authorities or even been to prison. It also helps the company follow up on
