Reasons for disciplining and terminating employees run the gamut—but blindsiding employees by firing them can create serious issues for employers given California’s strong legal protections for employees. Believe it or not, specific statutes limit your right to simply terminate a problem employee. And when taking disciplinary action, consistency is essential. Join our California employment law experts as they cover effective strategies for managing the discipline and termination process, including best practices for avoiding liability: Creating a fair and consistent disciplinary procedure; Distinguishing between coachable moments and necessary discipline; Training managers on unlawful employment actions in California; Legal requirements for investigations and documentation prior to termination; Whistleblower and other anti-retaliation protections; Proper handling of termination meetings; and Final pay requirements, including waiting-time penalties and unclaimed wages. Remember to always treat employees fairly and equally, even during disciplinary and termination proceedings.
