Human Resources, Inc. can instruct your supervisors about how to go about terminating an employee properly and how best to avoid unwanted issues from arising. Topics such as how to document your termination process, how to speak with someone who is about to be terminated, legal hurdles, and compiling a thorough exit checklist are a few of the subjects that will be covered.
Do you know the best way to avoid litigation?
For many small companies, a well-documented employment termination process could mean the difference between a smooth transition and expensive court appearances or settlements. Unless you already have in-house counsel that has an employment law specialty, nearly all businesses should consult outside experts to ensure compliance, particularly when addressing something as touchy as employees leaving your company. Merely making everyone ‘at-will’ isn’t enough. Most employees take being let go negatively and even baseless claims will see their day in court, regardless of their validity. Saying the wrong thing during an exit interview can get you sued. Human Resources, Inc. can work with managers and supervisors and teach the ways to avoid this.
Do you know how to prevent unemployment claims?
It is equally important to document and make very clear the reason for the termination, such as disciplinary records or unlawful conduct. Not having proper documentation leading up to someone getting fired, such as negative performance or evidence for precedence could result in false unemployment claims. Human Resources, Inc. can orchestrate unemployment claims consultations to instill a better understanding of current laws and how to get claims removed from your record. The more unemployment claims you have the higher your unemployment tax rate will become.
