Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on "Employer At Will", focuses on risk management strategies on how employers can prepare for allegations of wrongful terminations, how Managers can take steps to reduce their liability for allegations of discriminations, what fines and penalties are tied to wrongful termination litigation. Also learn how volatile terminations can impact safety for Employers, Managers and Employees. This webinar will also provide free volatile termination checklist for all attendees.

Why Should You Attend:

The impact of Employer At Will has increased in the past several years with the increase of workplace laws and regulations. Employers must be aware of how this increase impacts their business. The workplace regulatory agencies have always supported employees who have suffered workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, constructive discharge and retaliation abuse.

Most regulatory agencies have information available to employees on how they can file claims if they felt they have been a victim of any of the above negative situations. In fact, the regulatory agencies actively communicate and offer support for employees to make claims. Based on those issues, Employers are at risk for not only legitimate claims but also false claims which Employers are obligated to prove they have not committed the action alleged. This is exasperated if the Employer does not have all their other workplace compliance initiatives in place.

Employers must learn to mitigate these critical compliance risk or pay heavy penalties! Employers, Leadership and HR Professionals must attend this training to receive the tools necessary to add to their risk management strategies!

Topic Background:

At-Will Employment relationship means that either the employer or the employee is free to end the relationship at any time, with or without advance notice, and for any reason (or no reason) at all. At-will employment seems to give at-will employers free reign to fire employees. However, "wrongful termination" is a major exception to at-will employment. It is critical to note that Employers who believe that the At-Will Employment gives them a protection for termination decisions made without preparing appropriately for all termination decisions.

As a Compliance Advisor for Employers, the focus of my risk management strategy is to have Employers who want to terminate any employee is to answer the Y Factor Principle. The Y Factor Principle for Termination is actually not as formal as some might think (even though it sounds snazzy) but, it addresses the following for all terminations:

  • Why this employee?
  • Why now?
  • What was the reason for the termination?
  • Are there concerns about the employee being a “protected” employee?
  • Was the employee communicated about the behavior or infraction?

All Employers should go through similar questions for each termination. A decision to terminate should not be taken lightly. It should be taken seriously and each manager should be aware that a decision to terminate impacts the employee, other employees, Managers and leadership. In fact, the decision to terminate can push an employee to the limit since you are taking away the employees livelihood.
