Limiting liability in employee terminations.Coll Rev. 1986 Spring; 3(1):19-30.CR
Wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, age discrimination--these terms are becoming much too familiar to administrators as more and more employee termination lawsuits are being brought to today's courtrooms. Making matters even more difficult for employers, juries tend to sympathize with the employee. The employer's right to discharge an employee has become far from absolute. In this sensitive new environment, it is imperative that every employer adopt defensive maneuvers to avoid or minimize the risk of liability in employee terminations.
