Employee separation describes when an employee leaves their employer for any reason. These separations might be voluntary, because the employee chooses to leave, or involuntary, when the employer decides to end the relationship. Some employees simply abandon their job for a variety of reasons, nefarious and otherwise. Organizations also choose to downsize and eliminate jobs within the company by offering early retirements or laying-off workers.

A sick child at home. An accident or injury. A death in the family. Notification to serve on the jury for an upcoming trial. Each of these events is part of life and can temporarily prevent an employee from being able to perform his or her job. Supervisors and managers often find themselves in the position of responding to requests for employee leave as they handle the company's day-to-day operations. It is important for managers and supervisors to understand the basic guidelines for granting leave that are established by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other laws. This course describes the family- and health-related situations that trigger an employee's eligibility to take leave under the FMLA. It also explores the other types of leave which are protected by law and examines the criteria for leave entitlement.

Managers, administrators, and supervisors in healthcare facilities have many tasks to juggle every day. Besides running the facility, building a strong care team, providing patient and client care, and keeping beds full, they also have many duties related to staff performance management. Facility leaders should consistently manage their staff member's performance throughout the year, coaching away undesired behaviors and recognizing and rewarding desired behaviors. This ongoing cycle of performance management is then documented and used to give staff members their formal performance evaluations. For a facility to be successful, its leaders must routinely review and grade the efforts each staff member makes towards meeting the facility's goals and objectives. This course discusses the purpose performance evaluations serve within a facility and how to write them.
