Termination and Redundancies 

Terminations and redundancies are tough for any business. The Proven Group helps business leaders manage these difficult situations. We guide you through the exit process and assist in meetings with employees, making sure everything is done the right way and follows the rules. 

Eventually, employees will move on. Some will leave by choice; others might have to be let go. Handling these situations can be tricky, and it’s easy for businesses to make mistakes. There are lots of things to think about. It’s important to: 

  • Have a process for when employees leave the company 

  • Do you know what you need to do to terminate an employees? 

  • Understand the steps for firing someone because of bad behavior or poor work? 

  • Knowledge of what to do when letting someone go due to downsizing? 

  • How do you manage a redundancy process?  


In general, grounds for employment termination typically fall into one of the following categories: 

  • Misconduct – Occurs when an employee engages in behavior that violates company policies, breaches the terms of an employment agreement, or is unlawful. 

  • Poor Performance – Arises from factors such as a lack of skill, care, diligence, or quality, leading to suboptimal job performance. 

  • Capacity – Reflects an employee’s ability to meet the inherent requirements of their designated role. 

  • Redundancy – Occurs when an employer determines that there is no longer a need for a particular job to be performed by anyone, or when the employer faces insolvency or bankruptcy.
