Terminating Employees Safely

Duration: 60 Minutes
The risks of a former employee filing discrimination charge increases significantly after they are terminated involuntarily. It is hard to find information on how many discrimination charges are as a result of terminating employees (as opposed to hiring, discipline or other reasons), but in my 42 years of dealing with Human Resources issues, I would say the percentage is more than 95%.
