Terminating Employees Safely in 2022
If the employee pursues a legal recourse, wrongful termination may cause your company lawsuits of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Often, the punitive damages, court and attorney fees and other compensatory damages may increase the cost to a great extent. With the settlement costs so high, it's of utmost importance to comply with the legal guidelines before, while and after you terminate an employee.
Along with the Federal laws ensuring wrongful terminations are prevented, each State also has a set of legislations on it as well. Terminating an employee is always a challenge. Doing it wrong can result in discrimination charges, wage and hour complaints and wrongful discharge lawsuits. Planning and conducting termination discussions will go a long way to protect your organization from being victimized by a complaint from a terminated employee.
That’s not all. In 2022, organizations must also safeguard computer systems from being sabotaged and employees from potential violence. Join us on Clatid this October to learn about all of the tools you need to ensure terminations are handled correctly to greatly reduce the potential for complaints being filed with outside agencies or lawsuits.

Why You Should Attend
It is not uncommon for an employee to display anger and/or hurt after being terminated from his/her position. As a result, an employer should be mindful of the possibility of an increased risk for the employee filing a wrongful termination lawsuit, filing a charge of discrimination or retaliation, filing a wage and hour, FMLA or Workers Compensation retaliation complaint with state and federal agencies, sabotage and/or destruction of company property, the use of social media to spread disparaging and derogatory statements, and in extreme cases the use of threats and acts of violence. While the possibility of retaliation can never be predicted or prevented, companies can attempt to minimize the negative impact it can have on business operations.
Join us to learn the best ways to minimize such actions on the part of the terminated employee.
