do you know your legal obligations when terminating an employee?

Every business has legal obligations to their employees at every stage of the employment relationship. 

When ending an employment relationship, the law expects employers to treat employees with dignity prior to ending the employment relationship and – absent employee wrongdoing – telling the employee their employment is ending with sufficient notice.  

Fail to treat an employee with dignity or provide sufficient notice and you face run the risk of being involved in costly legal proceedings. Once legal proceedings are commenced, you will be stuck with the consequences of your decisions and actions. 

making informed decisions is key to avoiding costly consequences

Here’s the truth: avoiding an expensive legal proceeding while protecting your business interests will require some preparation. In short, you need to identify what decisions you need to make before the employee is in fact terminated. 

Designed by the lawyers at B&I Legal Counsel, the Termination Checklist is  a simple tool business owners can use in inform their strategy when preparing to dismiss an employee or terminating an employment relationship.

While this Termination Checklist is not a substitute for legal advice, you can use the Termination Checklist to work efficiently with an experienced lawyer as you work together to protect your business interests while satisfying your legal obligations to the departing employee.
