Employers have a very high bar to meet when terminating for “just cause”. This has left employers asking the question: “Can employers ever successfully terminate for cause?” This webinar will address how just cause terminations can be successful where an employer implements appropriate processes and strategies. Specific topics for discussion will include:
- Common grounds for “just cause”
- Off-duty misconduct
- Performance management
- Employers' duty to warn
- Investigating and documenting misconduct
- Special considerations for unionized employers
- Communicating just cause terminations
- 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET / 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PT Webinar and Q&A
