Disclosure of Dismissals (ET004)

Dismissing an employee can be a difficult thing if not handled well. Even if you manage to navigate that most delicate and awkward situation of breaking the news to them, there’s still work to be done. One thing you need to take care of is notifying the rest of your staff. How you go about this can have a significant impact on team morale. It can also affect the business reputation.

There is no “right way” or “wrong way” when it comes to disclosure of dismissals. A lot will depend on the employee being dismissed, the circumstances surrounding their dismissal, and the size and type of the organization. This course is designed to guide you on the issues you need to consider.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Take steps to minimize the disruption a dismissal may cause
• Identify the best medium and best time to announce a dismissal
• Write an appropriate dismissal announcement

Why take this course?

A number of issues arise for management or HR personnel figures when they dismiss an employee – not only logistical and procedural, but also human. If you’re a business owner, manager, or an HR representative, the last thing you want to do is send a shock wave through the organization causing staff to worry about their own positions. This training will outline ways you can limit the potential disruption caused by dismissing an employee – by announcing the dismissal at the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.
