OVERVIEW

The risks of a former employee filing discrimination charge increase significantly after they are terminated involuntarily. It is hard to find information on how many discrimination charges are as a result of terminating employees (as opposed to hiring, discipline or other reasons), but in my experience of 42 years in dealing with Human Resources issues, I would say that the percentage is more than 95 per cent. Therefore, termination must be handled well. There are several steps that should be followed when having a termination discussion with an employee. Following the steps in this webinar will greatly minimize your risks of being charged with discrimination when you have to terminate an employee.
