Learn2 Terminate an Employee (continued)
Step 2: Be aware of potential problems

It's never easy to look someone in the eye and say, "You're fired." Unfortunately, that could be just the beginning of your problems. Disgruntled employees can make a lot of trouble for you, so before taking action, become aware of potential pitfalls:

Company problems. Does your employee have any knowledge of, shall we say, irregular business practices? These might include wage and/or hour infractions, tax irregularities, or environmental violations. Be sure you keep your side of the street clean.

Gossip. Could an ex-employee make you look bad in the eyes of clients or competitors? Treat big mouths with kid gloves.

Theft, vandalism, and harassment. While rare, some employees are capable of committing criminal acts against you, your company, or other employees. If you feel this is a legitimate fear, act with particular care.
