Every company in Atlanta has gone through the process of terminating an employee. Although it is a natural yet unfortunate part of the business world, it is important that the termination process is handled correctly. If your company does not provide adequate termination counseling or fails to give the terminated employee a severance agreement, you may be making yourself liable to many different possible lawsuits.
If your Atlanta company does not already have a proper termination protocol in place— or if you are facing a lawsuit stemming from a termination— it is strongly advisable to that you reach out to an experienced team of termination counseling and severance agreement attorneys as soon as possible. This step could be vitally important to helping your company avoid costly consequences.
At Andersen, Tate & Carr, our knowledgeable and skilled team of attorneys have years of experience putting together the proper termination counseling procedures and drafting severance agreement contracts. It is our goal to help your company avoid any type of employment dispute case stemming from a termination. However, if your company finds itself in a lawsuit, we will be more than capable of handling your case and helping your company avoid costly consequences.
The Importance of Termination Counseling and Severance Agreements for Atlanta Companies
The termination of any employee in Atlanta inevitably brings risk to an employer. The terminated employee may experience shock and desperation, and they may seek out vengeance if the situation is not handled professionally. To avoid these risks, your company should have termination counseling for every employee that is let go, and you should have a severance agreement already written at the time of the termination.
When an Atlanta company handles their employment termination correctly, they reduce their exposure to EEOC charges, wrongful dismissal and discrimination claims, hourly wage lawsuits and countless other legal risks. Correct and comprehensive severance paperwork may also minimize a company’s liability to pay unemployment benefits, and they can be used as a way to achieve peace of mind and protection of the company’s interests and property.
