Comings & Goings: How to Legally Manage Employee Departures and Return-to-Work

Join us for this 75-minute online training focused on:

  • The New Steps of Terminations & Layoffs.

    New COVID laws have intensified the already legally risky termination process. Learn how to get in compliance.

  • When to Accommodate, When to Terminate.

    Discover where you can finally draw the line on all those (un)reasonable accommodation requests.

  • How to Return Employees to Work During the Pandemic.

    What to do if employees want to stay remote … or refuse the vaccine … or complain about a post-COVID disability.

Say your goodbyes to employees without saying hello to a lawsuit

Terminations of any kind are the most stressful and legally dangerous moment for any HR professional or manager. Just one mistake in the process—a discipline error, documentation slip-up, or the wrong words at the termination meeting—can spark years of litigation and a career black eye.

At the same time, your organization is dealing with how to safely and legally return employees to your workplace during the pandemic. And that’s triggering lots of legal questions relating to accommodations, employee leave, remote-work policies … and, yes, terminations.

On March 4, put an end to the legal anxiety surrounding employee comings and goings with 75 minutes of definitive, practical guidance.  Attorney Bill Payne will provide a clear explanation of how HR and supervisors must prepare for and carry out terminations, and lay out the best practice strategies for bringing employees back to your workplace.
