The Role of Technology in the Employee Termination Process

The termination of an employee is never an easy process.  Involving your IT team is important during this process so that the necessary precautions are taken to protect company information.

If proper steps are not taken by the Network Admin, the former employee could maintain access to the network including shared drives, applications, and email.  Former employees who maintain access to a company’s network and data are a major security threat.

JMK provides Network Admin support as part of our Managed Service program.  Part of this support includes defining and following specific protocols for new hires and for employee terminations.  When our clients need to terminate an employee, JMK can be of assistance in the following areas:

  • Immediately revoking all computer, network, and data access the former employee has.
  • Removing remote access capabilities.
  • Removing access to email, and assisting with forwarding or relocating the mailbox to another team member.
  • Any other network related changes that need to be made.

If you have any questions about this process or would like to learn more, call JMK and speak to one of our knowledgeable team members to discuss.
