The FRO advised the Applicant that his performance had not improved and raised concerns as to his non-authorised absences from work. 28. (...) Remedial measures may include counselling, transfer to more suitable functions, additional training and/or the institution of a time-bound performance improvement plan, which should include clear targets for improvement, provision for coaching and supervision by the first reporting officer in conjunction with performance discussions, which should be held on a regular basis. 10.2 If the performance shortcoming was not rectified following the remedial actions indicated in section 10.1 above, and, where at the end of the performance cycle performance is appraised overall as “partially meets performance expectations”, a written performance improvement plan shall be prepared by the first reporting officer. (...) The Tribunal finds that the comments on the Applicant’s functions were in line with the workplan and his job description, such that these cannot be seen as moving targets. As to the areas for improvement, the Tribunal considers that they are generally in line with the feedback that the FRO claimed to have given to the Applicant in September 2014, although they appear to be a little more detailed and direct and the example provided on the request to prepare project proposals came afterwards, in October 2014, as acknowledged by the FRO. 59.
