It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye: Minimizing Risk When Terminating Employees 2019

Involuntary terminations are never pleasant, but they are an inevitable part of business. Whether an employee is being let go due to poor performance or serious misconduct, chances are that he or she may take issue with the company’s decision—either during the termination meeting or at some point down the road. In the event the terminated employee decides to visit the nearest Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Office or meet with a plaintiff’s attorney, you want to make sure that you have taken steps to minimize risk and give your organization its best chance to defend against claims of discrimination, retaliation and/or wrongful discharge. This webinar discusses the various issues you should consider not only when you are making the decision to terminate but also in the weeks and months that lead up to that point. Drawing on their experiences as an HR consultant and management-side employment lawyer, the panelists provide practical tips to minimize exposure and best practices for conducting an employee termination meeting.
