Avoiding Wrongful Termination Lawsuits

Recently a settlement was reached in a lawsuit by the former employees of a New Orleans based institution. The layoff left even some of the senior level employees without a job and wounds deep enough to pursue legal action (These days, all it takes is a scratch). Situations like this are unfortunate, but sometimes layoffs are necessary. Defending a wrongful termination lawsuit is time consuming, expensive, decreases the morale of current employees and can darken the public’s perception of a business.

Fortunately, Wrongful Termination Lawsuits can be avoided by taking appropriate action when letting your employees go. Bringing in an expert Outplacement Firm to provide guidance on the structuring of an outplacement package as part of the severance offering serves to greatly ease the anxiety of the employee and reduce the risk of a lawsuit.

Including an outplacement package as part of a severance agreement can mitigate exposure as evident by the facts below:

Not only does a good outplacement package reduce the risk of a lawsuit, but it also shows your employees that you care about their well-being and maintain their goodwill.
