Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions

When an employee termination is necessary?

Assuming that you have taken steps to help an employee improve his work performance - and they are not working - it may be time to fire the employee. These are the legal, ethical steps in how to fire an employee. Ensure that the construction employer's actions as you prepare to fire an employee are above reproach. How you fire an employee sends a powerful message to your remaining staff - either positive or negative. So, always fire an employee as a last resort. But, do not jeopardize your construction employer success to retain a non-performing employee. Fire an employee to ensure the success of your other employees and your business.
