Employee terminations are often some of the most stressful, and worrisome parts of running a business. Moreover, they are potentially one of the most vulnerable to legal liabilities that businesses face as part of the corporate decision making process.
Employee terminations are common place occurrences within the corporate community, and these countless irreconcilable differences include but are not limited to: corporate restructuring and downsizing, lack of productivity, layoffs, theft, and many more...
Unfortunately, employee terminations can, and often do turn into extremely volatile and violent situations as well. In most cases, the typical and immediate reaction from an employee during their termination is a sense of betrayal. They believe that they have always gone above and beyond the call of duty for their employer’s and cannot understand why they are being terminated, but they leave without incident.
However, in many cases, instead of employees responding rationally, they react emotionally, thus complicating the termination process. These violent responses may be a direct result of but not limited to: the current economic downturn, an ever increasing and all time historically high unemployment rate, the realization that they are now unable to provide for their families or themselves, etc… In any event, these and many other variables drastically increase the probability of employee terminations becoming extremely volatile, and potentially violent.
Drago Protective Services, is dedicated to working closely with our clients Human Resources Departments, Security Departments, and their local Law Enforcement Agencies during all employee terminations. This process is critical in attempting to mitigate and/or limit the risk and/or potential for violence, as well as attempting to mitigate the exposure of legal liabilities.
In order to limit the potential for violence during employee terminations, Drago Protective Services, offers and utilizes many different approaches and techniques in an attempt to mitigate and avoid violence in the workplace to include but not limited to: performing proactive threat assessments prior to the employee's termination, and primarily utilizing active and/or former law enforcement officers and private investigators as DSAs (Detail Security Advisors) during employee terminations.
Additionally, in many cases, employers typically will only perform the standard pre-employment background investigation prior to the hiring of an employee; however, as part of our threat assessment evaluation for impending employee terminations, Drago Protective Services, will perform an exit background investigation.
By conducting an exit background investigation of the employee being terminated, our firm can provide our clients with a security threat analysis outlining the potential for violence prior to the employee's termination. These exit background investigations will consist of but not limited to: criminal background arrests, domestic violence arrests, DUI arrests, narcotics arrests, credit history reports, etc...
Unfortunately, in some cases it is already too late to consider performing and an exit background investigation. These reasons may include but not limited to: the employee has been observed stealing, has in the past or is currently being verbally abusive to others, has displayed violent tendencies or has already become violent at the workplace, etc… In these such instances, Drago Protective Services, can provide immediate Executive Protection Services to our clients, their staff, and their facilities whenever the need arises.
