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.
