Hiring and Firing for Small-Business Owners August 3, 2017

Finding the right person for your business isn’t easy. If handled improperly, employees can be a source of frustration. And if things really don’t work out, firing employees can be costly and risky. This two-hour session covers areas that can help you avoid costly hiring mistakes, including developing proper job titles and descriptions, using effective interview questions, how to dig deep with reference checks, knowing the difference between an independent contractor and an employee, and how to fire someone respectfully.

In this two-hour interactive session, you will learn:

  • The difference between an independent contractor and an employee
  • How to avoid costly hiring mistakes by using effective interview questions
  • How to dig deep with reference checks
  • When and how to fire during probation periods, with and without just cause, and providing appropriate notice or payment in lieu including the Employment Standards Act as it relates to terminations
