Before firing anyone be sure to investigate first, and then seek counsel. The Harvesters hear and deal with some crazy but real situations that owners have to deal with and report to them.

Some that have come in recently are:

Two of my employees are having a sexual affair!
One of our men got caught urinating on my customers lawn!
It was reported that one of my employees has a second job with a competitor!

Holy cow! Would you, should you – FIRE THEM?

Watch this week as the Harvesters give you specific direction in these situations. For further human resource advice there is an entire course on their business website. Just click the link below and check it out! It’s only $10.00 for the first month.

I have spoken about this topic over the years to numerous attorneys (many who are clients). Some have filed wrongful termination law suits for high end executives and various upper management people. Though not to be considered iron-clad wrongful termination protection the one limiting factor is that all these lawyers have said they don’t see a lot of dollars at the end of a landscape employee’s firing. They also mentioned that a sizable up front retainer is required before even delivering a demand letter. That said if we also have the three signed documents Steve mentioned we as employers should be able to sleep well after terminating an employee.
