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.
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.
