Introduction to the Termination Meeting

Termination is never easy, but it can be made less burdensome with standard steps and procedures. It is essential that employers develop a clear discipline and termination policy and communicate that policy to employees, preferably upon their hiring. There are numerous legal issues surrounding employee termination, and employers need to make sure that they comply with all federal and state employment and non-discrimination laws, as well as any employment agreements or collective bargaining agreements (in the case of a union). By consulting with experienced legal counsel to draft and implement a termination policy, employers can reduce exposure to lawsuits and other claims from terminated employees.

An important component of the termination process is the termination meeting. This section contains information on preparing for the meeting, conducting the meeting, and following up with post-termination issues.
