I always have them step outside the building

Sooner or later, most managers have to fire somebody.  The Evil HR Lady, writing in AllBusiness.com, has some good tips on the right way to fire someone...and the wrong way.  Since she recommends having a witness present, I've followed the wrong path, it seems.

How to Fire Someone
Whether it's for cause or a layoff, terminations are going to happen and you need to do it right. I'm not talking about documenting the reasons behind the firing or choosing whom to lay off -- I'm talking about how to fire someone.

There are right ways and wrong ways to go about this, and often people choose the wrong way because it seems easier and managers are generally wimps. Sure, it's hard to tell someone that they no longer have a source of income, but when it has to be done, it has to be done.
