IV. 7. Termination
Termination may be looked upon with great anticipation
or dread, depending upon individual circumstances. It may occur as a
result of retirement, change of position because of advancement or change
of interest, or being fired.
Termination should be handled by the administrator with
maturity and sensitivity, for the benefit of both the individual and
If an employee leaves because of retirement or for a better
position, usually that person feels positive about the departure. If
he or she is forced out, this may be a different matter. Every attempt
should be made to alleviate problems before a person is fired. Such
action should be fair to both the institution and individual. Talking
with an employee who is not functioning well often will alter the situation.
Further interpretations and clarification of the employee’s position
may make a difference. Sometimes additional staff development or individualized
training may be the answer.
