Can HR fire you?

Can HR fire you?

Can HR fire you? The simple answer is, Yes!  Companies have been known to use human resource personnel to conduct terminations. Generally, most companies use a combination of a manager and a human resource employee to conduct the termination.  One or both persons act as a witness in case the employee being terminated makes a damaging statement or otherwise violates company rules during the termination process.

Carey & Associates P.C. provides employment counseling to help employees and professionals with all aspects of their current employment development and beyond the attention of the employer.

Carey & Associates, P.C. represents employees and executives nationwide from all industries and professions in employment law matters. We collaborate with clients to find workable and cost-sensitive solutions to contract disputes, severance negotiations, general employment conflicts and office politics, compensation, and employment discrimination without resorting to litigation. We empower clients of all employment levels to embrace work and career challenges that exist just slightly outside their comfort zones. We believe growth and adversity are good for the soul. We also believe that the playing field of work is always level, it just depends on your perception and where you derive your knowledge of how to succeed.

We handle severance agreements every day. In fact, we probably have twenty or more severance negotiations occurring at any moment in time during the week.  We want to share some insights about negotiating severance agreements to help you better understand the deal in front of you and avoid costly mistakes.
