Notifying Other Staff of Employee that's Terminating
Does anyone have suggestions on how to notify other staff when an employee terminates under less than ideal circumstances? We recently provided Preventing Violence in the Workplace training to all of our staff, and addressed the issues of potential violence by former employees. The question was asked "If an employee terminates in a situation that is less than ideal, and could be violent - is the employer obligated to notify all of the staff that the terminated employee should not be on the premises, and if seen should be reported immediately?" Our legal advisors say to handle notification on a case-by-case basis, and those others that we have asked are in agreement with the legal advisor. Any thoughts?
