Many employers falsely believe that because an employee is an “at-will” employee, then there is little to worry about with wrongful termination.
However, an “at-will” employee status will not help if you violate employment laws. You may still have to contend with legal problems or a possible lawsuit.
California labor laws are the most complex in the country. 50% of business owners have been sued by a current or former employee.
Employee termination forms reduce your chances of a lawsuit
Terminating an employee is usually a hard decision. You should follow precise steps when terminating an employee to avoid allegations of wrongful termination and other legal problems. You should also document warnings given to the employee and steps taken toward termination to show that you acted fairly and appropriately.
There is no guarantee you will never be sued for wrongful termination by an employee. However, a reasonable objective would be to reduce the odds of that happening to as close to zero as possible.
You can do this by putting into place attorney-drafted employee termination forms and agreements, and by following attorney-recommended guidelines.
