Hiring and firing staff can be a very difficult process without the correct skills and knowledge. Ideally, you would like to ask the right questions to recruit the best person then manage their performance to build them into the prefect employee. But what happens if they are not performing to the company standard or conducting themselves in accordance with your organisational policies? Can you manage them back on track, or do you need to take the road to termination and separation?

In these four units of study, you will learn to manage separation or termination, performance management processes, workforce planning and employee relations.
