Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Termination of an employee should usually be taken as a last resort and not something so easy. However, if it remains to be the only option, then it should be conducted in professional and compassionate manner. Ensure that you do all the legal consultations to avoid going against the law as this may call for a legal suit. Explain to the employee well on the reason for the termination and try to encourage him/her on other options in life which can be taken. Try not to terminate the employee just after s/he is from a holiday or leave. Hold the meeting in a quiet place free from interruptions. Give the employee time to pack and leave. If possible, include an outplacement counselor. Of greater importance, thank the employee for his/her work in the firm and show how you regret terminating him/her. Never be too emotional even if there is need to show compassion. Have the termination letter signed in advance to avoid delaying the employee in such a meeting.
