Let's Talk About Risk: Best Practices for Terminating Employment 

Terminating an employment relationship is never easy. Whether for performance reasons, shortage of work or lack of funding, terminations are emotionally charged, which can cloud judgement. This session will cover what you need to know to effectively manage risks associated with terminations, and to handle termination in a fair and balanced manner, including:

  • Terminating with or without just cause
  • Employment standards and case law on notice periods, payment in lieu of notice, and severance
  • Tax implications and options for employees receiving severance
  • Cooling off periods
  • Avoiding wrongful dismissal suits
  • Reputation management
  • The compassionate side of the termination process
