Know About Your Rights and Responsibilities When Terminating Employees!

Juries often believe that supervisors and human resource professionals are just looking for ways to fire employees. Yet we as professionals know that the decision to terminate an employee is one of the most difficult management decisions there is. Terminations, however, often lead to lawsuits. Jury awards demonstrate a jury's willingness to punish employers for sloppy or illegal terminations and some of these awards are in the millions. Unfortunately, many of the costly lawsuits could have been avoided by understanding that while employers have rights, they also have responsibilities. What are your rights and responsibilities when terminating your employees?
