DON’T GIVE YOUR EMPLOYER AN EXCUSE TO TERMINATE

December 17th, 2014 Posted by

In the current work environment, employers are always looking for an excuse to cut their most expensive budget item (i.e., payroll).  As a consequence, mundane acts such as showing up late to work, calling in sick and sending an occasional personal email are being used to justify terminations despite the lack of any complaint about an employees performance.  Of greater concern, is that some employers are using such innocuous violations of company policy to claim “cause” which may cost employees both their right to unemployment insurance, and severance.
