The Termination Workshop: How to Fire Without Drama or Lawsuits

During this 75-minute live and interactive online training, learn how to:

  • Prepare for legally safe terminations.

    Discover the step-by-step process and airtight documentation you need.

  • Conduct lawsuit-proof (and peaceful) meetings.

    Learn where, when, with who and what to say in termination meetings.

  • Ease the stress for you and the employee.

    Your actions make the difference between a calm, amicable exit and a bitter, litigious headache.

Definitive, practical guidance on how to avoid the negative legal and emotional fallout of terminations.

Terminations of any kind are the biggest legal flash points for employee lawsuits. Just one mistake in the process—a discipline error, documentation slip-up or the wrong words in a termination meeting—can cost millions. Recent examples: A North Carolina hospital paid a $10 million verdict in a wrongful-termination lawsuit. A California pharmacy paid $6 million for its firing mistakes. 

Plus, you have to deal with the emotional fallout … risk of violence … and the response of co-workers.   

Do you and your management team know all the correct steps to avoid this trouble? 

On July 7, put an end to termination anxiety by participating in the newly updated Termination Workshop webinar. Attorney Anniken Davenport will provide a clear explanation of what HR and supervisors must do to prepare for and carry out a termination, including the particularly delicate handling of remote employee terminations. 

Don’t wait for a lawsuit to learn how to fire. Now is the time to prepare yourself and your supervisors to avoid the legal risks and emotional fallout that inevitably follow terminations.
