I can't think imagine of getting fired as well as firing someone. It is traumatic as the employee would continually ask himself if he was not good enough. HR people have a lot of things on their plate.

Welcome to Tweak Your Biz Kelly - and with an amazing first post. Thankfully I've only ever been in the position to fire two employees. The first when I was only 18 and she was older than me - my father thought it would be a good learning curve for me. Left me traumatised as she was so angry. The second was years later and again it wasn't a nice experience for me but at least the girl was very understanding this time. I'm sure your post will be helping a lot of people that don't necessarily have the HR training that is really needed to deal with situations like that.

Having to fire an employee is one of the most difficult and traumatic decisions that a business owner can make. Letting an employee go is hard not only on the employee, but also on the employer, and the other employees in your company. It is a decision that should never be undertaken lightly. Thanks for sharing.
