Dear Colleague:

Terminating an employee is stressful, no matter what the reason.

Perhaps a bad employee has reached the end of the disciplinary road. Or maybe the economy has forced you to cut back on personnel.

Either way, with so much tension during the termination process, you may not remember to follow the proper procedures – especially if you are not exactly sure of them to begin with.
That’s where The Complete Employee Termination Kit comes in. This thorough yet easy-to-use resource gives you the tools to easily walk step by step through the process. Termination still won’t be fun, but you’ll know you’ve done everything right – and helped protect your company from litigation-seeking former employees.
What makes the kit complete? It gives you both the knowledge and the specific customizable forms, letters, waivers and agreements you need for proper termination. The kit includes:
  • An 84-page manual that addresses everything you need to know about disciplinary terminations, layoffs/RIFs, employment law, the termination meeting, pay, benefits and more.
  • A companion CD with the complete manual, so you can easily have the information at your fingertips in your office, at home, on your laptop, wherever you need it.
  • Also on the CD, more than a dozen customizable documents, from a confidentiality agreement form to sample layoff-notification letter to a post-termination checklist. Save them to your hard drive, then simply plug in the facts about a specific employee, as needed.

P.S. A word to the wise. You may think you have “employment at will” on your side. That is, the right to terminate any employee at any time, with or without “just cause.”

Indeed you may, but that doesn’t prevent an angry employee from filing a lawsuit about supposed discriminatory or retaliatory intent. Even if you ultimately prevail in court, the best (and cheapest) way to win is by not going to court in the first place.

It’s all the more reason to get The Complete Employment Termination Kit – and use it. When you follow the careful, tactful procedures as recommended, an employee may be less likely to seek revenge, and an attorney may be less likely to accept a case. Order now.
