Replacing the Terminated Employee
Once all the other planning areas have been attended to focus your attention on other practical matters, such as how you will get the work done without the terminated employee. First, get approval to hire someone to replace the employee. Once approved, begin recruitment activities after the termination. In most situations, this can take some time to accomplish. In the interim, you may need to reassign the work to other employees or make arrangements to have it completed in some other way. Understand the extra burden this places on others and respond accordingly.
