How to Fire Someone

Okay, you've heard about what to do if you're a new employee. Now it's time to hear from the other side about how to fire an old employee. Old as in establshed at the company, not as in over a certain age, because that would be discrimination. Although I suppose that these tips could be used to fire new employees as well.

The University of New Hampshire felt that it was important to issue a series of suggestions on the most effective ways to fire employees. It's pretty basic stuff, be respectful, be clear as to what's happening, don't create ambiguity, etc. Still, there are some terrible bosses out there who absoultely need that kind of thing spelled out for them.

No matter how you slice it, getting fired is still going to suck for the employee.
