Employee Termination and Disciplinary Tips for Managers

December 16

Understand how to set employees up for success and how to discipline employees in a way that encourages positive change.

Many managers wait too long to document employee performance problems, which can lead to problems when it comes time to terminate the employee. Many managers also struggle to identify when they have the right to terminate employees who are not performing well but are on medical leave or who may have recently raised complaints about the company. This topic will help managers, HR professionals, and business owners understand how to set employees up for success through thoughtful hiring, onboarding, and training, and how to discipline employees in a way that encourages positive change. Learn best practices for employee terminations, to ensure the safety of other employees and to minimize legal risks. This material will also discuss the employer’s post-termination obligations, including payment of wages and vacation pay upon termination, and other requirements such as the obligation to provide a termination letter. During this time of high unemployment, employees are more likely to push back against termination and seek legal counsel, with the fear that they might not be able to quickly obtain another job. Accordingly, it is more critical than ever for employers to ensure they have appropriate policies and procedures in place, understand how best to document disciplinary issues and terminations, and set themselves up for a successful defense against any legal claims arising out of discipline and termination.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe best practices for how to discipline and terminate employees while minimizing legal risks to the company.
  • You will be able to discuss how to improve the documentation process for discipline and terminations.
  • You will be able to identify red flags that may impact your ability to terminate or discipline an employee.
  • You will be able to review company policies to ensure that they place the company in the strongest position to defend employee discipline and terminations.
