Termination

Application falsification
It's common knowledge that job applicants sometimes embellish information on their resumes in order to land a job. Technically, resumes are not legal documents, so there's not much an employer can do if you lie, except decline to hire you.
Constructive discharge
Whenever a reasonable employee is involuntarily forced to resign from his or her job to avoid working conditions that are intolerable or illegal, it's known as constructive discharge.
Defamation
Any false or improper comment made, whether written or verbal, that damages an employee's reputation or brings him or her into contempt or ridicule in front of a prospective employer or other employees is considered defamatory and illegal under federal law.
Employee assistance programs and termination
An employee assistance program, also known as an EAP (E-A-P), is a type of worker benefit plan designed to help employees overcome personal or behavioral problems that interfere with attendance or work performance.
Employment at-will
'Employment-at-will' is a term used to describe an employment relationship in which a worker is employed at the will of an employer for an indefinite period of time rather than for a fixed term.
Off-duty misconduct
Employers who are informed of an employee's misconduct that takes place outside of work can generally choose to react in three ways. They can choose to keep the employee, especially if the allegations are minor, suspend the person without pay until all charges are resolved, or terminate the worker.
Reduction In Force
Carrying out a reduction in force, also known as downsizing, is an unfortunate business necessity that many companies are faced with in today's competitive market.
Termination used as motivation
Motivating employees who aren't inspired to do their job can be a difficult task, especially when bad attitudes lead to behavioral problems such as chronic absenteeism, tardiness, or insubordination.
Voluntary termination
When an employee resigns from a job based on his or her own free will, it's known as a voluntary termination. An employee who voluntarily leaves an employment position may do so to take advantage of other employment opportunities, to escape an unfavorable work environment, or for personal reasons.
