OFFBOARDING:  How to Make a Clean Break with an Employee

To the business owner, letting someone go is a business decision.  To the employee, termination means an abrupt loss of their livelihood and often injury to their pride.  A worker who faces the loss of pay without immediate options for reemployment has a strong incentive to look for reasons to challenge the termination or make you pay for it.  This workshop covered the employer’s rights, duties, and risks involved in terminating a worker:

  • the basic legal principles impacting a decision to terminate an employee
  • employer “best practices” in this environment
  • how to terminate an employee as cleanly as possible
  • Colorado’s laws governing the last paycheck
