It’s a dreaded time of year for many, but employers might want to take note: Employees who think they have had an “unfair” performance review could very well quit, according to a study.

Eighty-five per cent of workers questioned by employee management company Reflektive said they would consider leaving their employer after receiving what they perceived to be an unfair appraisal.

More than half (51.7 per cent) would be extremely or very likely to leave after an unfair review, with a further 33.5 per cent of workers somewhat likely to leave, found the survey of 1,017 U.S. workers.
