Document Overview

Having a clear process to follow during Employee Exits will ensure you protect your business and its assets and help the employee leave with dignity. The employee exit process should always be set in writing. A written record can help protect a business if any questions or legal issues arise regarding the employment exit.

An exit interview is an extremely valuable organisational effectiveness tool, as it can help companies to understand the employee’s perceptions and experiences and get feedback about the job the employee held, their work environment and your place. Generally, it is recommended that all employees who voluntarily terminate the employment with your company are required to participate in exit interviews.
