Webinar: Managing the Employment Termination Process: Before, During & After
Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Is it time to fire an employee? Has the disciplinary process run its course? Do you have proper grounds and sufficient documentation? Have you consulted with HR – or in-house counsel? Terminations are rife with potential issues. This webinar will contain real-life examples of terminations – done right and wrong. Learn what to do once a troubled employee is identified; what to document before, during, and after termination; and how to dismiss the employee in a compliant and humane manner. Participants will receive a sample termination checklist and sample questions to consider before going to HR.
