Avoiding Wrongful Termination

An increase in wrongful termination claims over the years has left many employers and managers afraid to terminate difficult employees. Others unknowingly create costly wrongful termination liability through careless and uninformed practices. A single claim of unlawful termination can cost a company lost wages and benefits, punitive damages, and legal fees.

Our online course, Avoiding Wrongful Termination, helps managers to understand the principle of “at-will” employment and the important exceptions to the rule. Managers will learn to identify and prevent practices that could create liability and identify methods for effectively handling terminations to minimize the risk of a wrongful termination lawsuit.
