The risks of a former employee filing 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 experience of 42 years in dealing with Human Resources issues, I would say that the percentage is more than 95 per cent. Therefore, termination must be handled well. There are several 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.


  • Ensuring that the termination is not a "surprise"
  • The best day and time to conduct a termination
  • Allowing the employee to walk out with their head up
  • Behaviors to avoid when terminating an employee
  • How to communicate the change to co-workers?
  • Planning for the termination discussion

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