We assess the actual context of the situation, which gave rise to the need to terminate employment with specific employees, as well as review of the available documents for proper execution of such termination. Upon completion of the assessment we will issue a memorandum outlining possible ways of termination of the employment, associated risks for the employer, as well as the action plan, and documents required.
When the legal support is required, our experts may take part in the negotiations with the employee and other meetings related to the termination of employment.
The service is oriented on the companies of all sectors.
Proper formalization of employment termination is essential to avoid the risk of the employee's reinstatement in a job and awarding compensation for the forced downtime by a court, as well as other compensatory payments by the employer. Termination procedure is particularly important and complex when employment is terminated with CEO, chief accountant and other top managers, and/or due to the serious misconduct by employees, as well as when there is a trade union in the company.
Procedure and Deadlines
Upon review the situation and client's documents we will determine the most appropriate ground and method of termination of employment, depending on the particular case, which will be provided in a memorandum for the client. As soon as the relevant action plan has been agreed upon with the client, our experts will draft internal acts and other documents required for proper termination of employment.
The term for preparation of the employment termination (assessment of documents, actual circumstances, making recommendations as to the manner and procedure of termination) in respect of one employee starts from 3 business days. The total period of support the termination procedure depends on the duration of process of execution of the documents in the client’s company (2 weeks in average). In case of providing legal support to the employment termination within the staff redundancy or company liquidation, the period increases in proportion to the term established by the labour legislation.
