Few employers, if any, would disagree with the basic premise that progressive counseling/discipline is preferable to a policy of immediate termination. However, many of these same employers know that removing employees who cannot comply with the employer’s standards for behavior and performance is important. So how can these goals be accomplished in the least legally risky manner?

When properly implemented and administered, a policy of progressive counseling/discipline will permit an employer to accomplish both of these objectives with minimal risk of liability. Further, if when progressive discipline does not work, employers should know how to conduct a proper termination meeting and to evaluate the use of a severance/release agreement.

Topics to be discussed include:
• A typical progressive counseling policy and why your supervisors don’t use it
• What a good employee write up looks like
• Documentation tips and practices
• How to handle a termination meeting
• Whether you should offer severance and a release and if so, how to handle issues related to the agreement
