This week The Harvesters are talking about a serious subject, terminating an employee. These days there is considerable liability when terminating an employee, so it’s best to “do this by the book” to avoid possible litigation.

Watch as Harvester Steve gives us some very constructive information on how to do this correctly.

For further information or assistance contact Harvester Steve Cesare at 760-685-3800 (California) or email.

Under the heading “you can’t make this up” I terminated an employee in 1997. Even though he showed up everyday I told him that after two months he just wasn’t cut out for this type of work. Guess what? He thanked me.
He said “I felt the same way but I was raised not to quit and I didn’t want to let you down”.
I thanked him for his efforts and we parted on friendly terms.

A week later I received a call from a local warehouse company asking about this same person applying for an indoor job. I asked about his job description and then recommended him highly as I felt it was a good fit for him. To date I still cross paths with him at a local diner and he is now a dispatcher for the company and married with two children. Sometimes it just works out.

Excellent comment John, sometimes we need to help those who don’t cut it find work with other companies….
