Description

No one wants to be the one to deliver the news to an employee that he or she is being dismissed. It can be difficult and emotional for everyone involved and the potential impact on the organization in terms of litigated costs can escalate if handled incorrectly. This is why it is so important for supervisors and managers to fully understand their role, from ensuring the decision to terminate is the right one to following a process that enables the dismissed employee to exit with their dignity intact.This guide will provide you with a clear picture of what's involved in the process of dismissing an employee. It highlights factors to consider before finalizing a decision to terminate any employment relationship. This is especially important because as a manager charged with deciding and potentially terminating an employee, you need to be absolutely clear about the nature of the specific situation, including the reasons why an employee may need to be terminated. The guide also explores the elements included in a typical termination package with a view to developing a mutually acceptable offer that can help your organization to circumvent the need for costly litigation. This guide will walk you through the steps involved in setting up and conducting a termination meeting – covering who, what, when, where and how. It helps you look at what you need to do to safeguard your organization from a loss of assets and intellectual property perspective. It also highlights communication needs after the termination – both internally and beyond the organization. The goal is that with preparation, sensitivity and by following a few key points, you will be in a better position to effectively manage what is typically a very difficult process.
