Can Amplified HR help me with terminations?

Of course! Read on...

Termination Decisions

Can you relate to this story?

Pete is your worst manager. When you hired him, he was pretty decent. Worked his way through the ranks. But, if you’re honest, the only reason you promoted him to manager is because he had been with you the longest and was the only real option you had to fill the spot. And, you had to fill the spot because the open to close shifts were killing you.

At first he did fine. He made mistakes, but seemed to be listening to your redirects and maybe he was getting better. Except he wasn’t. Looking back you realize you were spending way more time fixing his mistakes and dealing with his drama than you were running your business. And now, he doesn’t even bother coming in all the time – it’s like he thinks the rules don’t apply to him.

You have a pretty good bench now. You can let him go without too much of a labor struggle. You’re ready. More than ready – you can’t wait to get this done.

On your commute home one night you review your options to let Pete go.

Text Pete “don’t bother coming in tomorrow – you have left me short staffed for the last time.”

Fill out a Separation Form that you downloaded from somewhere and give it to him to sign tomorrow if he comes in to work.

In our experience, employers find themselves in situations like this and face legal and unemployment insurance exposure because they don’t have any documentation, or poorly written documentation, that makes terminations risky.
