How to Legally End Employee Contracts

March 7, 2019 at 1:00pm2:30pm (PDT)

Holly Sutton and Chandra Andrade are speaking on the Lorman live webinar, "How to Legally End Employee Contracts."

In today’s employment climate, very few terminations are without some level of legal risk. Often, employers approach termination decisions without fully considering their legal obligations, and they fail to take important steps that will reduce the risk of legal claims. Managers and HR professionals may spend years wrapped up in litigation that could have been avoided by devoting an hour or two toward evaluating and planning a termination. Identify key steps that every employer should take in preparing for a termination, and how to approach a termination in a manner that decreases rather than increases the risk of a wrongful termination claim.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe best practices for lawfully terminating employees under term agreements and how to properly manage employees under written employment agreements. 
  • You will be able to discuss the best methods for planning layoffs and reorganizations. 
  • You will be able to explain the risks to avoid when terminating employees working under verbal or at-will agreements. 
  • You will be able to identify key items of concern when planning a termination.
