Program Overview

Terminating employees is one of the challenging roles of an HR practitioner. Improper execution may lead to lawsuits that may cause the company a huge amount of expenses.

There are 2 types of termination, just and authorized causes. Authorized causes for termination refer to the installation of labor-saving devices, redundancy, retrenchment or downsizing, closure of cessation of operation, and disease.

This 2-part series training program will help HR practitioners learn the proper process of implementing termination. This module will focus on the authorized causes for termination, its process, and jurisprudence. The program will also focus on other causes for employee termination.
