Whosoever initiates it, employee termination is HR’s responsibility

While line managers are responsible for work and performance related issues, employee terminating is primarily the HR department’s responsibility. Whenever a manager or supervisor requests for a termination, HR should critically analyze the case and find if it is a performance related, discipline related or something else.

The most common problem employers face during layoff is that they do not document performance-related problems. Then they get to the point where an employee’s performance becomes intolerable.
