Employees are some of the most prized resources that a company has, and they can contribute substantially to the success of a business. Unfortunately, employment relationships don't last forever. Employees can leave an organization for any number of reasons. Some may elect to return to school, find a new job in a different city, while others may cite poor work performance or downturns in the market as the reason for their termination or layoff. Regardless of the reason, when the time comes for an employer-employee relationship to end, a separation checklist will be useful for any employer. An employee separation checklist is a reminder of tasks that must be completed before the ties between the parties are permanently severed. It must provide specific details about these requirements and set a clear course of action for human resources and other staff managing the departure. Though terminating an employee or requesting the return of property from an exiting employee can be uncomfortable, it's a task that must be completed. A LegalZoom Employee Separation Checklist can help you minimize confusion, misunderstanding, and error and reiterate both your company's expectations and its legal requirements.
