Handling the Logistics of Remote Employee Termination

January 21, 2021

We live in interesting times with the COVID-19 pandemic still running amok and causing many employers to switch to more work-at-home policies to ensure the health and safety of their employees. But even before the pandemic, remote working has been utilized in a number of industries and jobs—and whether it is because of distance or because one must now socially distance, sometimes a remote employee termination occurs. But when that occurs, how does one carry it out? With the help of a dedicated courier service, it can be much easier than you think. Here’s the steps to go about handling the process of remote employee termination.

Giving Notice

First thing’s first, letting your employee know of their termination through an official termination letter or notice. For remote employees, this can be done over the phone, email, or by video conferencing. Whichever method you choose, it is always best to go about it in a professional manner that carries with it a personal touch, so as to make clear that your employee’s time was appreciated at the company—this in turn can help ease the process of their departure and the process of technically offboarding.

Technical Offboarding and Equipment Retrieval

Most of this can be handled by your HR and IT departments. But sometimes the process may involve the retrieval of important documents, company office keycards, and company-owned equipment, especially when in a remote-type work environment. After delivering a termination notice, you may need to retrieve company property and company-supplied equipment from your former employee’s home office. That can be easier said than done, especially if your employee lives far away or if one must remain socially distant during a pandemic. With the expertise of a courier service, especially one that practices safe measures for COVID-19, getting your office equipment back can be as easy as phone call.
