Terminations are sensitive and usually have multiple factors involved. They also look different depending on the country which is why although you cannot terminate an employee's contract directly on Remote, you can initiate the process by submitting a termination request.

How to submit a termination request

It's important to remember that before speaking to an employee about a possible termination, you must submit a termination request on Remote. This will allow us to review the details based on the employee's country of residence, relevant probation, and notice periods and then advise on the way forward. To submit a termination request:

  1. Go to the Team tab and choose the employee you would like to terminate. 


  2. From the employee's profile page, click on the Request changes button.


  3. Select Employee Termination


  4. Fill out the termination request then click on Request termination


Submitting the form starts the termination process. The employee will not receive a notification when you submit a termination request. They will instead, receive a termination letter only after we have finalized the details with you.
