The risks of a former employee filing a discrimination charge increase significantly after they are terminated involuntarily.

It is hard to find information on how many discrimination charges are as a result of terminating employees (as opposed to hiring, discipline, or other reasons), but in my 42 years of dealing with Human Resources issues, I would say the percentage is more than 95%.

Therefore, it is very important that termination be handled well. There are a number of steps that should be followed when having a termination discussion with an employee. Following the steps in this webinar will greatly minimize your risks of being charged with discrimination when you have to terminate an employee.

Why Should You Attend

In this webinar, participants will learn how to document poor performance, conduct disciplinary discussions, and terminate employees in a way that will minimize the risks of the employee going to a governmental agency to get back at the employer.
