Employment Termination

Terminating an employee is never a pleasant task. Certain legal obligations and restrictions come into play when a company fires, lays off, or otherwise ends the employer-employee relationship. For example, if you sign an employment contract with an employee, your rights and obligations regarding his or her employment will be determined by the terms of the contract. That means that if you terminate the employment before the agreed upon term, you could face a breach of contract lawsuit. Of course, the contract may provide for specific instances in which the employment can be terminated.
