Termination of an Employee - Avoiding Litigation is the title of a CLE seminar planned for this month by the New York City Bar Association.

Panelists will include employment lawyers (defense, plaintiff and in-house) as well as a human resources executive. They will explore the procedures that should be followed in terminating employees, separation agreements, special considerations for reductions in force and the various claims available to terminated employees.
