Performance improvement plans

To initiate this process, reach out to Lakita Rivero, TTS’s Employee & Labor Relations Specialist. Lakita will work directly with you to create the PIP/PAP for your team member; supporting documentation will need to be submitted to Lakita for review when creating the PIP/PAP.

The fully vetted PIP/PAP must be issued to the employee by the last working day of the FY19 performance cycle, September 30, 2019. Please note that PIP/PAPs must be reviewed by Legal, which takes a few days, before those plans can be presented to the employee.
