About this Program

Most employees are at will employees…but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful when firing them! Attorney Joel Greenwald discusses the top 10 considerations that every law firm must take into account when firing an employee. Though a majority of employees can be fired without good cause, there is an enormous amount of liability that one can incur if the proper steps are not taken. Greeenwald explains how law firms and all employers can manage the risk and offers practical tips for handling improper termination lawsuits.

 
Agenda:
I. Firing Employees without Good Cause
II. Employee Reactions
III. Legal Liability for Improper Termination
IV. Managing the Risk of Liability
V. Risks or Threats from Terminations Perceived as Unfair
VI. Documentation
VII. Economic Layoffs and Discrimination Suits
VIII. Resignation and Severance
