Presenter: Diane Dee 

Your employees have the right to a safe, non-threatening work environment. Their productivity and morale can be seriously affected not only by instances of workplace bullying and harassment, but also by their leaders’ response to these problems. Therefore, it is imperative that organizations have strategies in place in order for managers and supervisors to recognize the signs of toxic and/or illegal behavior among employees, and take action to restore a healthy work culture.

Executive Series 3, Session 3: Offboarding with Care; Conducting Legal & Ethical Employee Terminations

  • August 21, 2024 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Presenter: Diane Dee

If an employer has exhausted all the necessary steps to help the employee improve his or her work performance – and those steps are not working – it may be time to terminate the employee.

Terminating an employee is not only stressful for the employee losing a job, but also for the employer. There are legal, ethical steps to take when you terminate an employee. The company must ensure its actions are above reproach. How the company terminates an employee sends a powerful message not only to the terminated employee, but also to remaining staff, either positive or negative.
