Workplace Violence & High-Risk Employee Termination

Terminating an employee can be one of the most difficult and unpleasant events for an employer. Terminations may be necessary for a multitude of reasons including company downsizing, poor work performance, or violation of company policy. Regardless of the reason, the separation should be handled in the most professional and ethical manner with precautionary measures being taken to ensure an uneventful departure. But what if an employee poses a risk to the company based on past behaviors or actions? Do you know how to handle a high-risk termination?

It is not uncommon for an employee to display anger and/or hurt after being terminated from his/her position. As a result, an employer should be mindful of the possibility of an increased risk for retaliation. Retaliation can be carried out in a variety of ways including, sabotage and/or destruction of company property, the use of social media to spread disparaging and derogatory statements, and in extreme cases the use of threats and acts of violence. While the possibility of retaliation can never be predicted or prevented, companies can attempt to minimize the negative impact it can have on business operations. Let us take a closer look as to how this can be accomplished.

When terminating an employee, a company should always consider the potential security risks involved and plan accordingly. It may be necessary to involve key personnel from various departments including, human resources, legal, security and/or direct supervisor(s). Planning should include, but is not limited to, asking, and reviewing the following questions:

  • What is the basis for termination?
  • Does the employee have a history of disciplinary issues?
  • Has the employee ever made verbal threats towards management and/or co-workers?
  • Does the employee have a known criminal history?
  • Has the employee ever displayed assaultive behavior towards anyone in the workplace?
