    Manager blaming me for the recruitment of an incapable employee when I have got nothing to do with it

    I have been working in the HR department of a private company since an year. Recently a batch of freshers was employed from a private college in the city. One of the employees is incapable of working with the organization. I had nothing to do with his recruitment but my Manager is blaming me for the same. Now he wants me to terminate the services of the employee. What could be the best possible reason to cite for termination?

    Dear friend,

    Since, you were involved in the recruitment process, you will have to face this situation. The best possible solution will be to ask the employee give his resignation letter and leave the company. Please be specific and honest that he is not competent enough to work for the organization. So instead, you terminate him, ask him to resign. This will save his career in future as well as you will be freed of the situation.

    On the other side, let your manager understand that its not sole your fault. And ensure him that you will get someone who will compensate with the loss. Since you are a HR person, its your responsibility to take care of all the Human resources.

    All the best

    Hello Friend,


    Well, if you are not involved in the recruitment process then you should not hesitate to tell your boss about it. It is much better to speak the truth rather than getting punished. There are many people in our society who are not capable of working in the corporate world. This is a common thing these days. In the termination letter you should mention that the person is incapable of working in a professional organization and he lacks professioanl and mental attitutde to work in an organization. This will do fine for the time being.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is quite natural to get experience,exposure of works to do any work well,to be good in dealing with the people.Since the new comer seems fresher,he must be given sufficient opportunities to learn some experience in works.So first of all try to train him with respect to works & culture.In order to train him,give him a set of instructions to follow for discharge of works.In case he does not take interest in learning the works & culture,issue him a memo with warning of termination on ground of incapability

    So see his performance & proceed accordingly.

    Thanks & good luck.

    You are not responsible for employment of the incapable employee as you did not recruit him.If your manager blames you.Then you have to tell him that you are not responsible for the employment of that candidate.If you want to terminate him from the job you have to talk to HR department and that candidate and the higher officials who checked the certificates of that person and the interviewers you have to consult all of them and should take a decision.
    all the best
    thank you

    Hi,
    This is very crucial time for you, but according to me 1st just maintain separate status sheet of that employee and discuss with your manager so that you can have some valid points regarding that employee performance.
    Then share that status with "Employee" and give him/her at least 15days notice to improve his/her performance. If still he/she not perform up to mark then you can terminate his service asap because company not bear such candidate cost.
    So from above solution you also play good role as an HR by giving notice to that employee and your manager will also not blame you in future. Similarly that employee has also 15days time in his/her hand to find new job or try to improve his/her performance.

    As a hr you are responsible for getting good and fresh talent in the company based on the recruitment process and as well as the hr and gd sessions in an effective and efficient manner..as you are responsible for finding the right and talented candidate so the blame is entirely upon you but i feel that the rapport and relationship between the managers and hr department is worst and i have seen this sort of situation prevailing in the many companies its quite common that managers when they don't have their bunch of selected candidates they try to blame others you are sometimes misunderstood as a hr the fact is the college management do sometimes negotiate with the higher official of hr department which you will be unaware of some dealings they tend to pass on the information in accordance of selection of candidates based on the influence that college management puts on hr department as well...you are pressurized for getting the candidates into the company even though students lack some technical qualifications or practical knowledge.. Theoretically students do get 98-95 % but the fact is practically they are not at all good this is a reality the present scenario is 65% in academics that some students have are ignored education and job is totally different the marks and percentage is only to a limit they can be an additional advantage but the fact is students should have skills related to job profile ...so when company has some rules and regulations in recruiting the freshers then you are not at fault when a desired candidate has passed and if he is through the recruitment process then its totally irrelevant in blaming you..

    I think your manager is at fault and he is totally inefficient in setting some standards in work culture why he is blaming you for an single candidate sometimes hr do commit mistakes in recognizing talents as there are some compulsions in recruitment for getting some numbers right or set some number of candidates to be selected but you have selected others also so its like if you go to market and purchase vegetables of good kind but you will be not sure that each and every vegetable is good and sometime the cavity in each vegetable inside cannot be found now it doesn't mean a wife blaming husband that husband has got all rotten vegetables if she finds one vegetable not good its really ridiculous to be blamed by the manager if your manager is so much concerned in getting the right candidate... He should be blamed for not making the candidates well skilled...

    Now its important that performance appraisal which is crucial for any candidate after a year so ask for credentials of that employee from the manager as hr you can fill the performance appraisal so you can site the performance if he is not good at it you can just give him the exit only if he is inefficient at work
    you cannot just remove an employee initially when you have given him joining letter..

    A part of managers indecisive management also is responsible for blaming the hr because when he is unable to make an employee efficient as the new employees are freshers he needs to give importance for training the employee initially before making taunts and starting the blame game initially .. You should explain him your responsibilities and also you should to hr manager regarding this issue as this is not good on the part of hr department you can never take the blame for the recruitment every time and so.. Whenever you go to recruitment hr manager should consult the project or team management for their requirements and also their desired candidates of desired skill set without any standards you cannot really blame hr..

    Hey,
    This is really sad ...but if you have to terminate the employee then you can directly say that it is not acceptable that you had selected but you are not joining then you are terminating from the job.. so that that seat is given to some other eligible candidate.

    You have strong reason to terminate that employee so there is no need to be afraid. you boss is also right . so just tell him clearly that because of not joining the service he/she is going to be terminate.

    Regards

    If you are right on your place then no one can prove you wrong its my thinking because i have experienced a lot of times.
    If you have not recruited the staff member who is incapable of handling the tasks then you should not worry for tat because its all because your boss dont know the truth.
    Well as your boss just blaming you for the mistake then you need to prove that its not you that selected the incapable candidates for the same.
    Because if you not make the efforts to prove yourself right then again whenever any of the problem exist with you then he will blame directly to you for the same.
    So always play safe in these kind of situations because getting blamed for the thing that you have never did is not a good thing so you must go to your boss and explain the whole matter and get away with the situation as soon as possible and also give the name of the person who is involved in selecting thas candidate.
    See here is the thing about the capability of the employee so if you recruit any of the person then he must be well qualified and also have the experience of that work, but if that employee is not good at all then its obvious that your boss will shout.
    So you must have to do something for this because its not good at all.
