Hardware Retailing is providing a checklist to help you think through when and how to terminate problem workers. Keeping a poorly performing employee is risky for your business. However, firing comes with its own risks, even if you can justify the termination. If possible, employment termination should be a last resort and should come after repeated documented efforts to help a worker succeed.
This checklist, which you can download using the form below, is not comprehensive, but offers some questions to ask yourself when you’re deciding whether to terminate an employee. Be sure to consult an attorney or human resources professional before making critical decisions.
