Don’t add fuel when you fire

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Office Management,Workplace Communication

When you terminate employees, make every effort to minimize their embarrassment. Humiliating them will only make them angrier and more apt to sue you. First, keep it private. Discharge the individual in a closed-door meeting. Arrange for a witness such as a human-resources rep, but don’t invite others who have no reason to be there. Never scream “You’re fired!” in front of coworkers. If you must escort an employee from the premises, don’t call attention to the spectacle. Don’t march the individual through a busy office where he must pass dozens of peers. And collect the departing employee’s keys, ID badge and other work-related materials in private—not in front of stunned onlookers.
