Termination 101: Can I fire this employee?
Terminating employees is one of the most difficult tasks you’ll face as an HR professional. But even getting to the point where you’re allowed to fire an employee is sometimes just as hard.
Because while making the decision to dismiss is difficult no matter what the situation, it’s made even more complicated by complex labor laws and regulations.
Learning how to approach these delicate situations in a legal and professional manner is key to managing a successful workforce and avoiding claims of wrongful termination or retaliation.
This free webinar on December 6 will include interactive components and important information about issues that complicate termination.
You’ll walk away knowing the answers to questions like:
- Can I fire an employee who is pregnant?
- Can I fire an employee who is in their probationary period?
- Can I fire an employee who is sharing sensitive salary information with coworkers?
- Can I fire an employee who has exhausted their FMLA leave?
- How much documentation is required before I can fire someone?
And you’ll also learn what you should do in these real-life scenarios, including:
- Exhausted FMLA
- Drug test refusal
- Off-duty arrest
- Pregnant new hire
- Potential violence
- Performance issues
- Sharing sensitive information
- Harassment claims
