The Firing Process at Lightning Water Damage
While we strive to build a long-term relationship with our employees, there are instances where termination becomes necessary due to various reasons such as performance issues, policy violations, or restructuring within the organization. At Lightning Water Damage, we believe in fair and transparent processes when it comes to employee separation. Here's an overview of our firing process:
1. Performance Evaluation
When concerns arise regarding an employee's performance or behavior, we initiate a performance evaluation process. This involves setting clear expectations, providing necessary feedback and support, and documenting any performance-related issues. Our goal is to give employees an opportunity to improve and address any concerns before considering termination.
2. Counseling and Support
If performance issues persist despite the evaluation process, we may offer counseling and additional support to help the employee overcome challenges. This can involve training programs, mentorship, or additional resources to enhance their skills. We believe in providing every opportunity for growth before considering termination.

In cases where policy violations occur or serious misconduct is observed, we follow a formal disciplinary process. This may include verbal warnings, written warnings, or suspension, depending on the severity of the issue. Proper documentation is maintained throughout this process to ensure fairness and transparency.
4. Termination Decision
If all attempts to resolve the issues are unsuccessful, and it becomes evident that termination is the most appropriate course of action, a termination decision is made. This decision is carefully reviewed by relevant stakeholders and HR to ensure compliance with labor laws and organizational policies.
5. Exit Process and Transition
When an employee is terminated, regardless of the reason, we provide them with a respectful and supportive exit process. This includes finalizing paperwork, ensuring timely settlement of dues, and offering any necessary assistance for a smooth transition.
