Employers are often faced with the stressful task of terminating employees. Whether the result of a layoff, elimination of a position, or firing someone for cause, the employee termination process is never easy.

Challenges can arise when the employee in question:

  • Is out on protected leave;
  • Has made comments regarding potential medical issues;
  • Is known or perceived by the employer to have a protected disability;
  • Has recently had a work-related injury or illness;
  • Has complained of harassment/discrimination or is a witness in a harassment/discrimination investigation;
  • Has filed or threatened to file a wage & hour claim or other complaint of unfair practices;
  • Has exercised his/her protected rights under the National Labor Relations Act;
  • Is part of a layoff where a majority of affected employees is in a protected class;
  • Has demonstrated threatening or violent behavior.
