Termination Guide - BC

Description:    With every hire an employer makes there is the potential that the employer may have to terminate
                that hire in the future due to circumstances which may or may not be within the employer’s control.
                Such terminations can be very expensive and damaging to the organization if not managed
                The key to managing the risk of expensive and damaging terminations is not too dissimilar to
                managing certain insurance risks—it’s about prevention and process.

                The best prevention is to have a solid foundation in human resource practices:
                - Enter into easy to understand written contracts with all of your employees before they start,
                which would include, in the context of this discussion, a defined job description and expectations, a
                probationary period and termination provisions, including a defined notice period in the event of a
                termination without cause. It is also very important that your employment contracts comply with
                the applicable employment standards legislation to ensure their enforceability.
                - Have a clear and easy to understand employee Policies and Procedures Manual (including a
                performance improvement policy), require your employees to read it and understand it, and make
                it easily accessible to all. Where possible, the policy manual should be incorporated into the
                employment contract by reference.
                - Apply all polices in a fair and consistent manner to all staff. This also helps with keeping up staff
                morale and avoids condoning inappropriate behavior, which may come back to haunt the firm at a
                later date.
                - Perform regular performance appraisals, refer back to expectations set out in the contract, and, in
                particular, consult and interact with the staff in question on matters which may require
                - Have a defined process for handling poor performance and inappropriate behavior. This process
                should include meeting with staff in question, defining the corrective action to take, clearly outlining
                the future expectations, offering assistance for improvement, outlining the consequences for non-
                improvement and documenting your efforts. Establishing a paper trail will act as support for your
                corrective action, up to and including termination. Also, the act of documenting will force you to
                confront the issue(s) and deal with the consequences of the actions you are contemplating. That
                being said, build flexibility into policies and avoid lockstep procedures and hard to follow policies.
                - Utilize Corporate Policies when drafting polices and procedures that comply with applicable laws.

                organization and have the tools and documents already built for you!
