MEMORANDUM To: Pat Spencer From: Date: April 6, 2013 Subject: Cost Club Human Resources Info. CC: Cost Club Atlanta District Managers Here is the information requested in concerns to the potential HR issues within the region. I have addressed each individually and outlined below the potential risks and suggestions to minimize future risks.

The agent is responsible for any damages if this contract is unable to be terminated. Message 4: It is not uncommon for an employee to be in disagreement with an employer’s decision to terminate employment. An alternative we may try is to set up a meeting of the workers peers and give them the facts of the situation and let them decide if the termination was wrongful. The group of peers would be persons from a location other than the employees own. These individuals would hear the facts of the case from both the businesses’ and the employees. In order to qualify the termination would need to meet certain criteria. It would be required to be an established company guideline or process for which the employee was terminated and store leadership must be able to present all documentation that lead to the termination. This would require leadership to have followed the processes leading to termination. For the employee it would let them have a voice in their termination and to hear whether their peers agree with the employer or the employee.
