Overview of the webinar

The risks of a former employee filing a 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 42 years of dealing with Human Resources issues, I would say the percentage is more than 95%.

Therefore, it is very important that termination be handled well. There are a number of 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.
