Can A "Protected Class" Employee Be Terminated?
Employers are free to fire workers who happen to be in a protected
class. However, according to labor attorneys, you must be able to
show that you did not fire someone "because of" his or her protected
class. You need evidence of a legitimate, business reason for the
termination. Different reasons will require different documentation.
If you're firing for general poor performance, like inadequate
productivity, you should have documentation of progressive
discipline, including written warnings (signed by the employee) and
perhaps a performance-improvement plan. You'll want to have a list
of productivity goals and results for the employee as compared with
others in the same position.
Since it is difficult to
justify terminating someone for poor performance when evaluations
all say "satisfactory," you should have performance evaluations that
reference poor productivity. And at the time of termination, the
employee would be told that the termination was because of poor
If you're laying off an employee because of
reorganization, you should document the business reasons such as
financial reports showing a decrease in business volume or a
decrease in need for a particular administrative support function.
Also have explanations why other employees were not selected for
layoff, such as an evaluation demonstrating the employee remaining
had a broader skill set or was a better team player.

Personal Guarantee Insurance Now Available
As business owners know, most can't get loans and lines of credit
even for corporations without making a personal guarantee that the
money will be repaid. That requirement has stopped more than one
would-be entrepreneur from pursuing a business dream. And for owners
of existing companies, they forgo growth if they don't want to sign
a personal guarantee.
Now there is Asterisk Financial, a
personal guarantee insurance for small business owners, to protect
them from losing everything if a business falters. Here's how it
works: Owners of small to mid-size businesses or commercial real
estate projects can buy an annual policy that will cover 30% to 70%
of their net liability for loans of $500,000 to $8 million. The
premium depends on the business’ credit worthiness and can be as low
as 1% of the loan value. The policy beneficiaries are the owners of
