Offboarding with Care: Conducting Legal and Ethical Employee Terminations

May 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am UTC-7


If an employer has exhausted all the necessary steps to help the employee improve his or her work performance – and those steps are not working – it may be time to terminate the employee. Terminating an employee is not only stressful for the employee losing a job, but also for the employer. There are legal, ethical steps to take when you terminate an employee. The company must ensure its actions are above reproach. How the company terminates an employee sends a powerful message not only to the terminated employee, but also to remaining staff, either positive or negative.
Why Should You Attend:

Regardless of the company or industry, the way an employer treats their employees as they exit has never been more important than it is today. When a termination is done well, the affected employee feels he or she has been treated with dignity. Additionally, those left behind.

Most managers, regardless of level, handle the uncomfortable task of terminating employees badly. The biggest mistake managers make is terminating an employee in a harsh, unkind and insensitive way. Most times, this happens because managers have not been properly trained to handle terminations and are left to their own devices. In all too many cases, managers are likely to either say inappropriate things or fail to handle terminations expediently and professionally.

Participants of this webinar will learn best practices when conducting legal and ethical employee terminations.
