This module will discuss various aspects of terminating employees. We will focus on using a proactive approach rather than a more costly reactive approach that usually requires the assistance of an attorney. The reactive approach results in poor decisions and ill-advised HR practices. The consequences are always costly and include claims, litigation and damage to the company's reputation. Good HR practices are proactive. This approach results in well-thought-out decisions that protect the company and support its goals.
