Termination of problem employees can lead to lawsuits against an organization. To prevent litigation, human resource professionals must investigate and document the termination process. In this course, participants examine practices that minimize the risk of litigation by problem employees. Topics include pre-hire procedures, steps during employment, and a termination process that ensures "rightful discharge."
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to
- Discuss the level of appropriate corrective action or discipline for a type of misconduct.
- Explain steps that should be taken, when appropriate, before terminating an employee.
- Describe appropriate documentation processes and techniques for performance and misconduct.
