Firing Without Fear: Best Practices for Navigating the Employee Termination Process [01:05:12]

The employee termination process presents legal and other challenges for employers.  Despite the best efforts of managers, missteps in handling employee dismissals can lead to an array of legal claims and costly litigation.  Employers can mitigate these risks with careful preparation and execution of termination decisions. 

Please join our expert faculty, Jill L. Rosenberg, a partner at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, Lisa Lupion, a Senior Associate at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, and Heather A. Glatter, Director and Counsel, Employment Law, Credit Suisse for an in-depth discussion of best practices in employee terminations, including: 

  • Steps to take before deciding to terminate an employee
  • Do’s and don’ts in conducting a termination meeting
  • Strategies for use and drafting of severance agreements and releases
  • Special considerations for reductions in force, including WARN compliance, disparate impact issues, and compliance with the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act
  • Planning for post-termination issues, including media inquiries, employer reference checks, or other potential publicity in the #MeToo era
