Paradise Lost – Firing an Employee on Vacation

For some employers, the idea of firing an employee while they are away from the office – either because they are vacationing or on some leave – may be tempting. After all, it will avoid an uncomfortable scene at work, will facilitate securing electronic file material and other corporate records, and can assure confidentiality.

However, as my colleague, Samantha Stepney, writes in her most recent blog post, we recommend that you reconsider this strategy for both legal and other reasons.
