Some employees think that there’s some magic way to avoid getting sued when they terminate an employee. There isn’t one. If you have an employee who has engaged in misconduct to the point where you simply have to get rid of them and you have to do it immediately, you can go ahead and do that, but you have to make sure you document what it is that the employee did that caused you to terminate him. Documentation is the key in these areas. In fact, if you have a termination interview, it’s probably not a bad idea to record that so that you have evidence of what was said, and the reasons you gave to the employee for termination.
