Employers need to consider multiple sensitive issues associated with handling the termination of employees. It is important to strategically plan and manage termination scenarios carefully to limit disruption to the business and effects on staff morale. However, it is also crucial to be compliant with the laws in order to avoid expensive litigations before the court.
Employers must not only meet the formal and material legal requirements, but also deal with employee representation bodies, authorities, lawyers representing employees and effects on the terminated employee as well as the remaining staff.
The departure of senior employees, for example, can present challenges to employers both in a legal and commercial context, ranging from the protection of an employer's confidential information to its clients and its key staff.
Our experienced and commercially savvy employment termination lawyers will help you to develop a strategy to manage the departure of employees in a way which minimises risks to your business.
