employee write up for lack of attention to detail

“that form look really good”) which we’ve called her out on many, many times. I’m an engineer and a large percentage of my class had extra time on tests because of issues with math, dyslexia, ADHD, etc. Mixing up the parties? If she repeats this process a couple of times and does not improve then things are much more serious, and you should clearly inform her that not dealing with these performance issues will result in career problems. “You need a good LSAT score to get into a good school–and you can’t get a good LSAT without a high IQ”. I would encourage you to reexamine your assumptions about what signals competency or capacity in the legal profession. Yeah, I really can’t imagine that needing to take your time with instructions is going to sink someone’s ability to do… Most things, really. Lots of people are friendly. ADHD would be a best-case scenario, here. The percentage that come out of law school making six-figure salaries in Big Law or as corporate counsel is not even 20%. Attention to Detail is the capacity to achieve a thoroughness and accuracy when accomplishing a task. He just does the best he can and gives it to me for a final look over. My point (rather poorly outlined) is that it took me two and half years of hard work to create a system that addressed the feedback I was getting. Third, partners in my firm review almost everything the associates do. Maybe your school experience was closer to your work experience than mine, but, at least for me, there are a lot of skills that I needed in school, that I have never needed since- skills directly impacted by most learning disabilities. I’m about that age, and while there was certainly a concern about over-diagnosis of ADHD, it was exclusively in young boys. Is that the case here? Testing environments are hell for ADHD and other disorders, in a way that most working conditions (in my experience) are not. Do things like balancing your budget by hand. Holiday and PTO time doesn’t count towards overtime…except in Cali where it’s over 8hrs a day without a collective bargaining. I have trained some of the junior attorneys in my office how to do basic document drafting, but we’re talking things like “here is the form we use” and “here is an easier way to format this document.” They have to know how to do it before they can delegate it to me. Or that people with ADHD shouldn’t be here because medicine is ALL ABOUT prolonged focus! Maybe it’s just me that observes not doing it on principle? There is plenty this student could eventually do given extra time. Alison, I’m sorry, but people aren’t being polite TO ME, and that’s not okay. Is there a time you identified an error that had been overlooked by a colleague? – Ask someone else to look at headings so that they’re in the correct format (I’m especially bad at that) Actually, the number of people suggesting that this person move into medical compliance is… Really illuminating. There are literally Supreme Court cases that hinge on the placement of a comma or the ordering of a statute. We develop checklists for standard processes, not for, “Are you sure that the evidence matches what the client says?” or for, “Are you sure you got the clients’ names right?”, Exactly. Heh, this was me with our mortgage. Junior attorney just means you’re newly graduated. I think I will need to make it explicit how damaging this is for her career. don’t you realize by now that commenters are always perfect in every way? Maybe you can ask her what motivated her to study for and pass the state bar? I am definitely going to take Alison’s advice and speak to her seriously about it when I’m back from my trip. I’m not fast to jump to firing but Jessie needs to be transitioned out at this stage. What do you call 1L and 2L summers, then? This is what I do with my interns, law clerks and very junior attorneys. What you’re describing isn’t a lack of attention to detail—it’s a reading comprehension failure and a failure to understand the elements of a claim/defense and the evidence required to prove that claim. I would never suggest billing a client for your own stupidity/mistakes. Solved for me by a quick second set of eyes, which I’ve told my boss I need, and why… but I also don’t work for a firm. That is a huge problem. It absolutely should be reviewed by a more experienced lawyer or paralegal who knows the case and can spot problems. …and that IQ has been shown a number of times to be a poor indicator of intelligence, likelihood of success and just about everything else that people think it’s designed to measure. Sometimes it helps to read the sentences in reverse order. Privacy Policy and Affiliate Disclosures. She can do the work, but she often misses obvious things and her attention to detail isn’t great. Attention to Detail is the capacity to achieve a thoroughness and accuracy when accomplishing a task. The OP clearly has a good rapport with Jessie and cares about her a lot. Well, if you read back up, my reference to ADHD was an example and Slow Gin Lizz suggested that this professional adult might have no idea that health issues in general could be causing her troubles at work. I’m in banking and what I do involves a similar type of thing: great attention to detail, combing through account activity, trying to determine if it’s suspicious, and tying the pieces together. So just keep that in mind. Yes, in some firms. If printing is not an option, re-reading or reading it loud would help catch some of these problems. can help one’s mindset to be think more critical/more distrusting, but this suggestion might be seen belittling to an adult whose already gotten her law degree. It sounds like way more than grammar and spelling, though. A couple of mistakes have recently made it to court when I wasn’t supervising that particular matter, and the partner was too lazy to review it properly. I know this sounds cold, but someone who is a bad fit and can’t do the core work has the potential to lower morale, drag down the team, negatively impact clients, lose business, etc. I don’t take twice as long to finish work tasks, because I’m not trying to do them in a silent classroom where I can’t get up, check my phone, Google reference information, or even possibly switch between tasks, as time allows (and often you’ve gotta write by hand, which is its own torture). So Jessie needs to set up a system where she proofs her own work. And while she can ask around for advice, tips and tricks, she has to test and weight each one of them, because what works for some does not work for others. They were incorrect – had the house in Primo’s name only. hi Dawn, what is your department or type of role called? For finance at least – a lot of compliance personnel are hired out of the legal world (this is starting to change, but it’s still a pretty common thing) and her JD would be an asset. I would be very unhappy to be paying a lawyer who needed that level of handholding. It seems surprising that she would be able to get through law school and pass the bar if there were such serious issues, so it is worth following Alison’s advice to ask her about strategies she used in those contexts, and making sure she understands the seriousness of the issue. Doing what we do in my department is a learning curve for anyone, but it’s particularly steep for someone who has a hard time with the gray areas and the subjective stuff, and has to somehow make a lot of connections between them. It may be time to formally address your employee's performance issue with a written warning. I will also have to do things that no one else does to make up for it, and that’s fine with me. But it may take more time than the OP wants to allow to see if Jessie can get up to speed on it. I have exactly zero legal training but “getting names right” and “making sure evidence says what we’ve been told it says” seem pretty obvious. I wasn’t hired as a typist, so it really irks me to be downgraded on my typing instead of my more important and mission-related duties. *shiver* If people weren’t so idealistic, I wouldn’t shine so bright though….making a career out of scrubbing the ineptitude out of small business financials. Attention to Detail: Use these examples for setting employee performance goals. Mediation might be a good career path if Jessie is an empathetic “people person” but not as great at writing. I work with complex financials, and some of what I’m working with is checking for discrepancies down to literal pennies. My friend tried talking to this student some, but could only go so far without being called out for not accommodating a disability, which ironically means she’s failing to *help* the student with a disability. I remember being in a job earlier on in my career where I made a bunch of mistakes and I really didn’t think they were a big deal. Looking back now, I think she was extremely lucky to get this warning before she even started college, so that she didn’t waste any of her time studying something she was not suited for. You kind of hit my nail on the head. An recent example is when a client said that they used all the funds from a sale to pay off a mortgage. How? Like, it didn’t tug her heart strings, sorry your dad is dying but meh? She cannot make those kinds of mistakes and succeed in the legal field. While I agree that a lot of this sounds like ADHD and coping mechanisms that no longer work well, I also wonder how Jessie is coping in terms of the workload? Or she should have realized in her summer jobs that law is not the place for her. If she has not been evaluated, she should do that asap, because there’s a non-zero chance that the problem could be completely solved. Having her create this kind of a structure to review cases for every intake may help her develop the skills to review evidence more completely. My alma mater turns out grads just as excellent and just as awful as every school – just with less debt. You asked what you can do, and honestly the most helpful role you can play here might be helping her figure out pretty quickly whether or not this is a field where she’ll do well. I’m not a lawyer yet (fingers crossed for bar exam results next month!) They aren’t for the big picture stuff like the actual argument though, more like is there a mailing label, are the checks there if needed, are all the forms signed etc. I think the LW can offer “Is there any other way I can help you with this?” but then it’s on the employee. -What does the evidence show? If nothing else, SOMEBODY already knows what the right answer is to the question, what the right takeaway is from a lesson. This particular junior attorney is making serious mistakes in areas fundamental to the job. A good paralegal or legal secretary can help with most of those problems, but if she doesn’t understand the evidence she shouldn’t being doing the job. Trying to do so (and then using that number to judge a person’s worth) severely limits and disenfranchises those with learning disabilities, those who grew up in poverty, those who excel in the soft-skills (emotional intelligence), etc. 4. Be sure to write down exactly what you say to the employee so there is no question or "That's not what I thought you meant"s to deal with later. – Read text aloud (if it’s very important ) He has trouble adapting and identifying that sometimes it’s the same thing in a different outfit. Except that recent studies have shown that IQ is tied to SES as well – that people who live in poverty have lower IQs on the statistically significant level. – Make a table checking my new content against any reference documents However, if I discover through proof reading that I’ve missed a word, or I am using the wrong word usage, I will search the entire document. All this however, is dependent on Jessie asking for help. I still review 80% of his work and regularly catch errors and write explanation emails to him. It’s very hard to proofread your own documents. She must presumably have had decent references… from somewhere. One of my coworker’s husband went all the way through architecture school, practiced architecture for 2 – 3 years, and hated it. Oh, no. Sure, although it’s possible she might need another degree as well. Compliance can be very operational (taking the rules/regulations and figuring out how to put them into practice – what procedures should the company put in place to ensure the rule is being followed, what sort of documentation is needed to prove the rule is being followed). On a fax. I really appreciate this comment and wanted to thank you for writing it. But I’ve tried everything on this BP, seen no results and wasted a lot of time and effort. No attorney should rely on their client’s word without verifying it. And that are still happening even though she says she double checking. If she starts taking care of things now, it’ll save her a lot of pain in the long run. I agree. Don’t worry if you don’t have previous work experience. My suggestions are time consuming, and in a world with billable hour goals, budgets and mandatory overtime, they may not work for you. “Most attorneys don’t have the opportunity to practice in law school ”. But lots of employees would find it inappropriate for their boss to suggest this, and the OP is not a medical professional. Even as an undergraduate, I had to provide evidence for my statements, list accurate citations, and get names right in papers. I’ve been thinking more about this one, and I dont have the most natural attention to detail myself (It’s hard won). I’m not a good fit in my current position, and am actively looking to change jobs, but it was honestly a relief to me to hear from my supervisor that I might not be a good fit, but that didn’t mean I don’t have strengths/skills that will make me awesome somewhere else. The question is if it is worth it to the firm to take the time that will likely be necessary to teach it. The job market for lawyers now is tough enough even if it is a good fit. Things that have helped: A couple things that helped me – I created a list of things I had to check in each document – first, when I worked as a prosecutor, I turned my Microsoft word grammar and spelling check up to 11. Once that happens, the meds are far more useful. It’s up to Jessie to take the initiative to figure out the *why* or underlying cause and fix it if it is indeed fixable. Some seriously (I have had to pivot mid hearing because if this). I’m an admin assistant, not in the legal field, and attention to detail is CRITICAL. I think of it as akin to a surgeon operating on the wrong leg. At the same school, I knew a girl in the large and prestigious biomedical engineering program who dropped out halfway through her second year after, it turned out, having not gone to class for multiple months. OP has no say on whether this person keeps her job. Going through emotional upheaval? Mistakes in legal documents can change people’s lives; if she’s throwing it off as “oh, I’ll get better” or “oops” – major problem. It takes more repetitions than I feel is reasonable, but he is catching on to some of his errors of interpretation. Just about everyone gets a job in a government law office or firm or whatever in that time frame. to point out to the supervising attorney when the documentary evidence does not support the client’s statements? She would be transitioned out within 6 months for these types of mistakes at my last firm. It makes sense that when everything is chaotic, details will slip. Plus, the whole true and correct to the best of my knowledge part Sal mentioned above. And the mix of errors here doesn’t really speak to distractability per se, either. How did you think about confirming that?”). He’s still laughing but I’m getting a vibe he’s offended by that… and frankly I’m having a hard time keeping the “you’re a moron, off you fuck” look off my face when I deal with him now too :S. Onr item to check – maybe pop on unexpectedly amd watch her work? I know EXACTLY who you are talking about! I agree with Alison that it implies greater issues with reading comprehension and attention to detail. To use the room cleaning example, if you apply the mucking out the stable list to a cleaning up the bedroom job, you’re going to have a problem. Some people don’t have great attention to detail! I’m wondering if she does actually have the skills but doesn’t have practical how-to apply the skills experience this yet. Agreed — this describes me as well. Being kind and letting her transition is the best advice I can give you. Check for internal inconsistencies can be an item on the checklist, but if Jessie’s brain isn’t wired to catch those inconsistencies, it’s pointless to remind her to do that. If that’s the case, maybe it would benefit everyone to make a template for simple things where the names are not on the actual template. Another time, the solo had an appeal dismissed because she missed a deadline. Are there times you have made huge mistakes due to not paying attention to details? software to review documents and locate key words, but you also need some inherent good judgment and attention to detail to identify things that might be important for your case. ... His attention to detail and planning set him apart from the rest. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was ADHD. That’s my point. I have ADHD. Those are far from easy. Attention to detail is a pretty integral part of the job and if I were your client I’d be wondering why you’re incapable of doing such a basic task. Like you, I am high-functioning and was successful in my field before my diagnosis, but some things in my personal life changed, and it got a lot harder to function. only got the diagnosis a few years ago. Because that document was not going to generate any public interest and didn’t need a second look…. List all mismatches between client statements and fact. This is a PITA but it is gradually working. If she can’t work to a basic competency level, she should not be practicing law. Also, I can concentrate on the details in shortish bursts – I just can’t maintain long term or near constant focus on the minute details (and I have a enough variety in my responsibilities that I don’t have to). I just don’t see small stuff like the wrong date, or I get impatient and stop checking. If you want to help her with her legal writing, including typos and using the wrong names, advise her to read the draft to herself aloud. The objection should be in writing, dated, and signed by the employee. Another girl, a good friend of mine, dropped out of the engineering school one semester shy of degree completion, in part because after almost four years she still had no idea what kind of engineering she wanted to do or where she was going to go with her career. At work it’s much more common to write on the computer. But I don’t use calculus in my job so it’s no longer an issue. This may not be the career for this lady – which is really rough, given the cost and time investment that is law school etc. Some people really do think that checklists are for ~dumb~ people doing ~menial~ jobs, though. There are certain things you need to do on each project of a given type. I’m surprised this hasn’t been brought up – what’s her workload like? I don’t disagree it’s possible the OP hasn’t been explicit enough that the job is at stake, but I am also of the mind that it’s really bizarre Jesse managed to get through law school and pass the bar, and wouldn’t already know that these mistakes are a Very Big Deal. Perhaps she’s better suited for negotiations or arbitration. It’s a different kettle of fish and different stakes. The “I would NEVER hire Jessie even to fly a kite” comments are also kind of overkill. (But plenty of architects without a learning disability run into problems with those. She’s 18 months out of uni, so yes, I think her responsibilities need to be limited for now. Overall though, the manager is right, she may simply not be cut out for that type of work. Like, just full-on non-grammatical non-idiomatic speeh on the reg. These are all basic things. Is it clear to her that it’s part of her assignments (always? Well, it might matter in that if she is undiagnosed, a diagnosis and medication could quickly and easily get it under control. But most college students can in fact learn how to do this reasonably competently, if they spend enough time and effort on it, and you can make a checklist out of a sequence of questions to test the evidence. I had a lawyer review the files and tell us exactly how to word the ownership (joint tenant or something like that). These are good ideas but, yeah, as a client I would be LIVID if I was billed for one minute of this. YES. This was before office computers.) If she’s not getting it, you’ve done all you could. “A person’s law school is often a signal of their SES, not of their professional competence.”. The problems with evidence are of course a BFD. To be honest, I can’t think of many law-adjacent fields where attention to detail and critical thinking aren’t important. Clinics and internships only give you so much practical experience, and I have no idea what they have in the UK. No secretarial training, either, come to think of it; although I was fairly speedy on the keyboard. True, you check after. You’re also generally expected to do a lot of your own admin work, so you have to be very organized and aware of details like typos, filing deadlines, etc.). I know that I could go over medical evidence and accounts stuff but if you gave me something to do with engineering or building something I’d immediately tell you “not my field.”. I read all the comments, thinking; why are people armchair diagnosing, don’t they know we’re not supposed to armchair diagnose? How much of the repercussions is Jessie aware of? I think this is a great question. I know this and certain jobs just would not appeal. Yes, but the OP did say s/he wanted to help her. Yup. For example, what are the clients claims/defenses, what evidence supports those claims, what is the opposing side’s claim/defenses, what evidence supports those claims, what evidence do we have that doesn’t fit into either bucket. Those evidence mistakes were 90% of my nightmares when I first started practicing. I know at least one US jurisdiction doesn’t require one to take a bar exam if they completed law school in that state. They also based it on their own assumption of what a doctor needs to be. I make myself a cup of tea. how much do typos matter when applying for a job? I mean, yes, there are small suggestions you could make that might help around the edges, but the problem is big enough that I don’t think that’ll fix it. I fired a lawyer for this. Being a lovely person is no substitute for being competent when you’re dealing with matters that need attention to detail. You will subconsciously add words that are missing so that a sentence makes sense, or you will see a name without processing that it is the right name. If the neediness impacts the employee’s work performance, it may be a sign that this person is not up to the job. Can I ask how you came to the decision to leave law and how you decided what to do next? It is not the same as years on the job, obviously, but in my experience nearly every law student practice in some way outside of school. I was mortified at both of those mistakes and was reamed for them by the bosses (probably an over reaction when a stern “be more careful next time” would have sufficed). Attention to detail is one of the core skills to working effectively in the legal world. – What case law is affected? How did this person get through law school without paying attention to detail? The potential degree for harm there is immense. Some of us just need a little extra time to figure out the best way to understand it, if our learning patterns are atypical. I really hope she finds the best fit job for her. A lot of times , these problems are not due to lack of detail but due to the speed / time limitations. Specifically, on March 1, 2011, at approximately 2.45 pm you told a … Depends in circumstances, of course. It’s one thing to have a typo or two in a document — not great, especially in legal documents, but usually fixable. Excellent attention to detail and the ability to find mistakes are critical in my job, and she just did not possess those skills. What’s the point of having Jessie around if someone else has to redo her job entirely? It is also inappropriate for a supervisor/coworker to suggest that Jessie may have a diagnosable condition. Re: “I think it is important that you also ask whether your colleague has been tested for ADHD…” But that’s me. For regular typos (nad, hte, etc.) I also think that most people would benefit from a few years in a non-attorney legal position to see what the lifestyle of law is really like before committing or even basic work experience before law school. Oh, dear me. i’m sure plenty of us know people with high IQs who would be terrible lawyers! Meds AND cbt (therapy) helped a lot, I am a valuable teammember where I work now. The bar exam is tough, but doesn’t really test for these kinds of skills. But if she DOES have the skill, then it’s possible that this will help her build the structure she needs to get the work done. This was significant to me because I was a single mom struggling financially. I can’t imagine living with her mistakes or having a job. I guess it depends, are there some things she has consistent trouble with, or is it a new field filled out incorrectly every single time. 5. If she’s not coming up with these methods on her own, and it sounds like she isnt, you might want to look at her problem solving skills – has she ever had to adjust to this type of setback? Can someone inside this apartment see the elevator at the end of the hall through the peephole? Because of my relationship with her, she’s been really open when I’ve tried to suggest ways to help her get better, and doesn’t get upset when I raise it. She has to figure out for herself which way to go. It’s a great episode. And that’s not how check lists work. Brilliant ones. Some semesters were rough and I’m sure I did not impress quite a few of my professors. Its not really comparable to today’s letter. There’s only so much good advice, and hard work, and double-checking can do when a person is suffering from a basic lack of IQ points. At some point, the hand holding is just too expensive and too risky. Then in real lawyer life the person who had to correct my mistakes was – surprise – not happy about it. Not every person has that set of skills. A junior attorney who makes repeated, significant mistakes will usually not progress because nobody will have confidence in her and will therefore not give her work to do. It is really tough on a manager to have a talented employee you like, and who is clearly diligent and hard-working, and still lets too many mistakes slip through. Oftentimes, good lawyers are resilient, have a strong work ethic, and have grit—all things that a person builds in response to adversity and/or failure. Your friend would indeed have been wrong to advise this student to leave the profession. Those are all risks for aspiring attorneys to weigh. That’s very likely to be a sign of a core, fundamental mismatch with the role. Checklist could be: The teller kindly took my paperwork and pointed out to me what could have happened if the paperwork hadn’t been delivered that day. But she’s not missing specific tasks every time. Graduate schools can be a luck of the draw thing too: I have a decent number of friends who went to the Fancy Ranked Undergraduate university and opted to go to state school for medical or law to avoid picking up too much debt. You can give examples of your student life and performance. And Jessie doesn’t seem to have the ability to back the trailer. Writing it all out is slow, of course, but it’s concrete and can give you and Jessie information about how well she actually is doing the job. For the lack of attention to detail you could recommend checklists, peer reviews, detailed reviews of work by others etc. It’s easy for me to miss small details so I have to take actions that force me to check for mistakes. I think it’s important to reframe the problem, here. What I mean by this is that you don’t want to spend your time consumed with small, low-value tasks. If she knows she screws up parties’ names, she should check specifically for that. I think the kindest thing OP can do for Jessie right now is be frank and lay out the problems they are seeing, and how it affects both Jessie in terms of her reputation and standing (both with the firm, but in the legal world), and the firm’s standing in general; and what she has already done and how it has potentially hurt the firm and her reputation already and has set everyone up (real lawyers have spelled it out better than I ever could. I know it’s really hard to give someone tough news, but it’s better for her to learn, now, that what’s she’s doing is malpractice and can cost her her job.
