Terminating Employees: Top 10 Tips

2011Brochures Practical Advice
1. Do not make “snap” or “knee-jerk” decisions to fire an employee. Even if the employee has committed a serious offense, immediately suspend (rather than fire) the employee first. Then, evaluate the situation and when appropriate, make the decision to terminate.

2. Investigate the facts FIRST before firing the employee. Too many employers rely upon what later turns out to be unfounded assumptions about why they decided to fire the employee.
