Involuntary terminations are an unpleasant, but unavoidable fact of the workplace. Whatever the reason for the termination – poor performance, misconduct or absences – employees often take issue with the reason they are being let go. Employers can and should learn how to minimize risk when saying goodbye so they can avoid costly, distracting, deflating experiences with the employees they need to let go. Join an expert panel of legal minds, including Gary Savine, principal, Savine Employment Law, Ltd. as they discuss this complex topic during “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye: Minimizing Risk When Terminating Employees”, the latest webinar in the series Protecting Your Employee Assets: The Life Cycle of the Employment Relationship co-produced by Financial Poise™ and West LegalEd Center™. The webinar will air live on Tuesday, June 15 at 2:00 p.m. CST.
“At my firm, we see both employee and employer sides of involuntary termination on a regular basis. An employee terminated against their will may challenge an employer’s decision to let them go at any point in the termination process,” says Gary Savine, principal, Savine Employment Law, Ltd. “Employees may respond immediately to termination or wait until they can identify an issue with their tenure at the company or the process that resulted in their termination. Employers need to be strategic to minimize the risk of claims against them for discrimination, retaliation or wrongful termination. This webinar is a great opportunity for HR managers to build their knowledge to refine their processes for involuntary termination.”
“It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye” will cover the various issues that are involved are making decisions that lead to involuntary termination, as well as what happens in the weeks and months that lead up to that point. Drawing on their experiences as HR consultants and management-side employment lawyers, the webinar panelists provide practical tips to minimize exposure and best practices for conducting an employee termination meeting.
