Q. We have an employee who has been working from home. We’ve decided we really need someone in the office. Can we terminate her by phone? Or do we have to call her into the office?

A. There is no requirement to conduct a termination meeting in person. However, it is recommended if at all possible. Treating someone with respect during the termination process can go a long way in minimizing the chance that he or she will file a lawsuit later, or otherwise engage in activities that are detrimental to your business.
