    Keep In Mind:

    Employees should be aware of workplace policies regarding disciplinary action, suspension and termination. If your company has a progressive discipline policy, you should have written guidelines that cover each step of discipline. The most effective ways to communicate these policies are during new-hire orientation and within your employee handbook. Many employers request a signed acknowledgment from employees that indicates they have received and understand workplace policies set forth in the employee handbook. This helps to provide backup when it comes time for a temperamental termination. Every employee file should contain a signed acknowledgment in case questions arise concerning termination or any other workplace policy.

    High-risk Employee Termination

    The termination of an employee can be a traumatic experience for both the employer and employee, and in some cases it can present a danger to the workplace environment. With workplace violence on the rise, extra security may be vital to the success of a safe and uneventful termination. This is a service that is being requested more and more by Human Resources departments as it greatly reduces liability during these trying situations. Diamond Investigations’ services will offer you peace of mind and the assurance that you and your employees will remain safe throughout this difficult experience.

    In most cases, the typical and immediate reaction from an employee during their termination is a sense of betrayal. Employees 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 or the realization that they are now unable to provide for their families or themselves. In any event, these and many other variables drastically increase the probability of employee terminations becoming extremely volatile, and potentially violent.

    In order to limit the potential for violence during employee terminations, Diamond Investigations offers and utilizes many different approaches and techniques in an attempt avoid violence in the workplace and individual office by:

    1. Performing Proactive Threat Assessments Prior to the Employee’s Termination

    3. Utilizing Private Investigators
    4. Having These People Act as DSA’s (Detail Security Agents)
