On April 25, 2018, I presented a complimentary webinar called “Don’t Fire Me on Friday!” For those who couldn’t attend the live webinar, I’m happy to make it available for you to watch at your convenience.
In the webinar, I go over some practical tips on how to let employees go without aggravating the situation.
Here are some of the DOs that I discuss:
- Have a Good Reason
- Notify Them in Person
- Preserve Their Computer
- Consider Getting a Release
I also talk about some DON’Ts:
- Do It on Friday
- Leave Room for Debate
- Ignore Reasonable Requests
- Repeat the Same Mistakes
Why You Should Watch This Webinar
Firing people isn’t the easiest thing to do. Yet, most employers will have to let an employee go at some point.
Many employees will go away quietly, never to be heard from again. A few, however, may remain a thorn in their former employer’s side. This webinar seeks to help you avoid the latter scenario. You can’t change the person you’re firing, but you can control how you do it. There’s no guaranteed formula, but there are some best practices and approaches to avoid.
