Consider These Before Firing Your Employee
The US Law provides some legal rights to employees including fair compensation, rights to privacy, and freedom from discrimination which should be followed by every employer. Even job applicants have their own rights before being employed by their prospective companies.
While there are a lot of unreported cases which involves sudden cessation of a job because of mundane things, it can be helpful as an employer to understand that you are dealing with a person who is working for his family and being an ethical and justifiable boss can be just as crucial.
Think Things Through Before Making a Decision
It is often easy to be swayed by accusations that are baseless if any. Sometimes employees are just making things up to make others appear incompetent and inadequate for their positions. Being the person-in-charge, make sure to think things through before making that important decision. If a supervisor is accusing an employee of negligence or incompetence always look for a basis or even a documentation that confirms the argument.
Getting personal is also a common problem with employee-employer accusations that often leads to litigation proceedings. As someone who has the right to dictate what is and what is not right for your organization, don’t get personal with your decisions based on the worker’s personal background or history. Lawsuits for employment discrimination and unjust discharge are one of the cases with the highest penalties.
Do Your Job as an Employer
Being an employer entails a lot of different work to manage your employees. This means you have to comply with the employee’s expected compensations calculating the right amounts that they need to be paid with. This also means that they need to get the right severance pay if applicable otherwise it would lead to a violation of your employee’s rights.
