About This Course:
This webinar addresses the law and legal theories related to protecting company interests when an employee resigns or is terminated - whether voluntarily or involuntarily.

Topics include distinguishing between types of employee separations and their potential ramifications; the primary federal and state laws at issue in any resignation or termination; disciplinary and cause terminations; job eliminations and RIFs/layoffs; various concerns when separating employees while on ADA, FMLA or other approved leaves of absence; exit interviews and returning company confidential information and property; avoiding unfair competition through covenants not to compete and other restrictive covenants; and the numerous considerations involved when deciding whether and when to offer separation agreements and severance pay.

Throughout the material, client counseling strategies and practical tips will be offered for applying these legal issues and principles when employees resign or are terminated from employment, with an overall objective of not only complying with applicable law, but also helping employers better protect their legitimate business interests in the process.What You'll Learn:Primary Laws - Federal and State
