How to terminate an employee is one of the most-asked questions received annually by the MDA human resources staff. Many factors contribute to the stress of terminating an employee and because the process can be so overwhelming, many employers put off the termination hoping the problem will just get better. In reality, when problems go unaddressed, they generally get worse leading to declining morale and decreased productivity that spreads throughout the office. In this training you will understand the best practices for progressive discipline and termination. This training will also cover the importance of documentation and how to avoid mistakes while terminating an employee.

Learning Objectives:

  • What does “at will” really means?
  • Documentation.
  • Progressive Discipline.
  • What documentation you’ll need if you’re taken to court.
  • Who is in the room and how to structure that meeting.
  • What should you say and not say when terminating an employee?
  • What is a protected class?
  • What do you say to the staff and patients after the employee has been terminated?
