In addition to the required payments on termination, include any employer costs related to the employees’ statutory deductions.
Prepare your response (350 – 500 words) using your name, correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. You will be penalized if you are excessively over or under the suggested word count. Your response must be stated in your own words and should be based on the course material, your experiences, knowledge gained through the course and at least one external government resource.
Any responses taken directly from the external government resource or course material will not be accepted. Information referenced from the government resource(s) and the course material must be cited. For example:
