It’s Not Hard to Say Goodbye: How to Reduce Legal Risk When Terminating an Employee

July 26, 2022

This webinar is part three of the three-part Proactive Strategies for Limiting Legal Issues throughout an Employee's Lifecycle series. To purchase the full series, click here.


An organization’s best defense against employment-related disputes is its foresight and preparedness to anticipate workplace challenges throughout the lifecycle of each employee’s tenure with the company. This process requires the organization to formulate and implement proactive strategies that contemplate each stage of the employment relationship, commencing with its hiring and onboarding practices, and concluding with the manner in which it handles terminations.

FTLF’s Employment Law practice group is pleased to present a special three-part webinar series that will provide you with proactive strategies to minimize the risk of legal issues arising with respect to each step in an employee’s lifecycle with your organization. In this third part of the webinar series, we will discuss the steps you can take to reduce your organization’s legal risk when terminating an employee. We will guide you through the best termination practices and policies, including when and how an employee should be terminated. We will also cover how to avoid retaliation and wrongful termination claims. And, we will help you navigate common legal issues that arise during the termination process. 

The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase one week after the conclusion of the live webinar.
