Lawful Employee Termination Training

Lawful Employee Terminations Online Training Course

Course Overview

Terminating employment - like hiring - is a baked in part of managing people and organizations, but it is also difficult, unpleasant and a particular challenge to less experienced managers.

The decision to terminate an employee, sets in motion a number of duties of the employer to handle the termination the right way. Managers should shepherd a process that preserves the dignity of the terminated employee, gives remaining employees confidence that the company treats employees fairly, and minimizes the risk that an angry employee will file a claim.

Despite its importance, terminations are also a skill on which managers rarely receive training. Good training gives managers the tools they need to understand and navigate what can often be a trying and potentially risky task.
