What’s the Risk of Getting Sued by My Employees?

There are many ways you can expose your company to a lawsuit by wrongful termination. 50% of California business owners have been sued by a current or former employee.

Many employers falsely believe that because an employee is an “at-will” employee, then there is little to worry about with wrongful termination. However, an “at-will” employee status will not help if you violate state or federal employment laws. You may still have to contend with legal problems
or a possible lawsuit.

Good documentation reduces your chances of a lawsuit

Terminating an employee is usually a hard decision. You should follow precise steps when terminating an employee to avoid allegations of wrongful termination and other legal problems. You should also document warnings given to the employee and steps taken toward termination to show that you acted fairly and appropriately.

There is no guarantee you will never be sued for wrongful termination by an employee. However, a reasonable objective would be to reduce the odds of that happening to as close to zero as possible.

Our attorney-drafted documents, instructions, and information can help protect your company from lawsuits and reduce stressful circumstances when terminating employees.
