peer review

   In employment law, an assessment of the performance of a professional or skilled worker by a committee of people in the same occupation or with similar skills. A peer review may be needed to determine whether a person has been legitimately discharged, denied promotion, or otherwise penalized by an employer. It may also be used to decide whether someone has failed to meet minimum standards in the field and is potentially liable to a damages claim for professional negligence.
