Question: What happens if an employee is terminated?

Employees terminated by an employer have certain rights. An employee has the right to receive a final paycheck and the option of continuing health insurance coverage, and may even be eligible for severance pay and unemployment compensation benefits.

What can an employer say about a terminated employee?

In many cases, if you were fired or terminated from employment, the company can say so. For example, if someone was fired for stealing or falsifying a timesheet, the company can explain why the employee was terminated. Depending on state laws, employers may also be able to share general feedback on your performance.

Can an employee be terminated immediately?

Generally, an employer must not terminate an employees employment unless they have given the employee written notice of the last day of employment. An employer can either let the employee work through their notice period, or pay it out to them (also known as pay in lieu of notice).
