Sometimes you need a Terminator!

HR Practices, LLC - How to fire a friendFriendship is a bond that should be unbreakable, but when you’re in the difficult position of having to fire a friend or an employee you’re close to, your friendship will definitely get tested. Along with your own disappointment that your friend hasn’t done what he or she was hired to do or perhaps pity and sadness if your friend is simply a victim of operational cuts, is the fact that you’re responsible for terminating your friend’s employment as a boss, not as a friend. Whatever the reason, this can be a very painful experience for both parties, and if mishandled, it can be destructive to your friendship. While it’s not easy separating the two different relationships you have with this person and then following formal business practices for terminating employees, it’s necessary to achieve a fair outcome and one that will hopefully keep your friendship intact.
