Reduction in Force/Layoff

Employee Terminations


Every company will eventually decide to involuntarily terminate someone’s employment. Whether it’s poor performance, misconduct, or a large-scale reduction in force, these events are potentially violent and should involve professional security practitioners with specific expertise and experience.

Athos team of recognized security experts with decades of experience as corporate security directors and law enforcement executives provide assistance to a variety of US companies with differing levels of security sophistication. Many client companies have no internal security resources or employ security personnel that lack the expertise to conduct termination events. Companies with experienced security programs and personnel often need support in these difficult assignments and rely on Athos to augment their staff.

Secure termination and layoff actions require a comprehensive effort that addresses risk during planning, advisement, premises exit, and follow-up. When retained early in the process, Athos’ experts assess the likelihood of violence and plan accordingly. A dignified, expedient and carefully orchestrated advisement is designed and onsite security resources are provided. Afterwards, the employees’ exit from the premises is conducted so that contact with coworkers is avoided and property is appropriately returned. After the event, Athos assesses the likelihood of retaliation and provides security to address it.

Our experience, respect for confidentiality, commitment to sensitivity and courtesy, and ongoing support to client partners through these processes distinguishes Athos from other companies. For individual employee terminations or multi-state reductions in force, our clients trust the experts at Athos to protect their people, property, information, and reputation.
