Terminations are very sensitive and the appropriate measures should always be followed to avoid penalties.
What to do before terminating an employee
If you are thinking about terminating an employee, we suggest that you reach out to us first so we can guide you before communicating your intention to the employee. The process and timelines can be different depending on the local labor laws present in the employee's country. Some other factors involved in the termination process include the probation period, notice period, and outstanding time off which counts towards the employee's final payout.
The termination process
We will first need to confirm the country-specific termination regulations and required notice period. The information and documents needed will depend on the country the employee is located in. However, we always need the following:
- Date of contract termination
- Reason for termination
- How much time off the employee has taken
- Any items to be included in final salary e.g expense, refundable sign-on bonus, etc.
Once we have all this information, we will begin the process of offboarding this employee. Our team will reach out to the employee directly to issue a termination letter. You will be notified once the process is complete.
