Employer Defenses Against Wrongful Termination Claims

One of the best ways to defend against these types of claims is to prevent them before they ever occur. As an employer, you can ward off the possibility of a wrongful termination case by observing the following:

  • Have policies and procedures in place: You should have clear and concise policies in place within an employee handbook. Policies should address discipline and dismissal of at-will employees.
  • Train managers and supervisors: Be sure your managers and supervisors are trained to carry out your written disciplinary procedures, including documenting any and all disciplinary action taken against an employee.
  • Create a paper trail: Thorough documentation of any employee violations could help to avoid a lawsuit. Keep a record of any disciplinary action against an employee and a written record of performance issues. Ensure all employees are subject to your uniform and consistent standards.
