Firing People

The 10 commandments of termination meetings, where one or many are fired, come only after you have completed a termination checklist; you have played out the reason for termination.

If it was for performance, do documents support you? If it was for attendance was the employee aware of the policy? Were any of the absences excused under the #ADA. Are there potential claims by the employee and how would they play out? Do you have all the documents in order to defend against claims and reduce the risk of lawsuits?

Five Things Not To Do In Termination Meetings

  • Do not have additional people (strangers or even attorneys). Have the supervisor and the designated people skill person, and HR if needed
  • Do not fire by e-mail, text or any other impersonal method
  • Do not terminate on a Friday or early Monday or any other time that allows for “brooding”
  • Do not escort the person from the building in the view of others
  • Do not embarrass the person or tell him he was a subpar employee.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
