Employee Termination Security & Concerns

What is workplace violence? Who is vulnerable? What can employers do to help protect these employees?
By: Jeff Stein, LPI
June 27, 2009 - PRLog -- Terminating an employee raises concern in many managerial minds.  Anticipating any security concerns related to the termination, can lead to many sleepless nights leading up to the termination.   Let ELPS Private Detective Agency provide you with peace of mind.

One of the highest risks that management and human resource professionals encounter is the threat of workplace violence following termination. Seventy-five percent of all workplace-related acts of violence have occurred during or after the firing process.

“Indeed, stories of workplace violence are filling headlines of late -- the San Diego bus mechanic who killed two co-workers or the unemployed man in upstate New York whose 12 shooting victims included a receptionist and a teacher.  With such jarring tragedies, fears of violence fueled by financial worries are growing as the recession puts strain and stress on anxious workers, experts say.”  By Ellen Wulfhorst

Recent litigation and court rules have made it clear that employers must provide a safe work environment for their employees.  Improperly handled terminations may put your company and employees at risk.

ELPS Private Detective Agency understands that one of the most difficult things about being a business owner is firing or laying off employees, even when you know it is necessary.  We help make sure everything goes safely and smoothly.

My team will make sure that your workplace remains fully functional.

The danger of workplace violence is an unfortunate reality in this day and age. Whether you are terminating an employee to prevent a risk, or you fear a hostile termination may incite a problem, having trained security staff on hand is a smart precaution.  We'll be there to prevent a problem before it starts, or take action to keep your employees and business assets safe and secure.

If there is any concern after this process is completed, we can also provide physical security afterwards to insure against any risk of retaliation.
