Understand How To Conduct An Employee Termination

Terminating an employee is something every employer must do at some point. Unfortunately, juries seem to believe that employers are looking for ways to terminate an employee while employers tend to put it off as long as possible. Studies have shown time and again that procrastination is the worst enemy of a human resource professional. Procrastinating causes you to lose control of the situation and make costly mistakes along the way. Juries will punish an employer for these costly mistakes – sometimes in millions of dollars.

Join our expert Susan Desmond to understand the rights and responsibilities of an employer in the process of employee termination. Learn how to prevent wrongful discharge and get useful tips for conducting a termination meeting and exit interview. Susan will also talk about separation agreement and what it must include.

In this session, you will learn

  • What is “wrongful termination”? Why thinking that employment is “at will” WILL land you in trouble
  • Preventing “wrongful discharge” lawsuits starts long before you fire the employee
  • Your employee handbook – is it making your ability to terminate more difficult?
  • Understanding the opportunities - and risks - that surround performance evaluations
  • Separation agreements: Do they really keep you out of court?
  • What every separation agreement should contain
  • Advantages/disadvantages of conducting exit interviews
  • Tips for handling the termination meeting – what you must say and what you must not say

  • Human resource managers
  • Directors
  • Company owners
  • Office administrators
  • Supervisors and managers
