Seminar Description


It's an unfortunate reality in the workplace…eventually, you may need to terminate an employee. Terminations are difficult on both a personal and professional level…how can you protect your company from litigation, while at the same time fostering a productive workforce? How can you address an awkward termination discussion with honesty and empathy, while still maintaining legal compliance?

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the do's and don'ts of employee terminations. Topics covered will include:

  • How do you know when it's really time to terminate (and alternatives to termination)
  • Why there's no such thing as "at will employment" in a termination meeting
  • What steps should you take prior to terminating an employee?
  • What documents should be in your file before you terminate?
  • What documents should you prepare for the termination meeting?
  • What to say (and not to say!) in the termination meeting
  • How to handle the termination process
  • Severance and release options
  • What to say to the rest of your team
  • What to say to your customers
  • Protecting your company information and equipment after termination
  • The aftermath of termination…now what?
