Resumen: In spite of the theoretical and practical importance of understanding involuntary turnover within organizations, few studies have focused on this phenomenon, with the vast majority of research describing the effects of massive layoffs on survivors or the effects of being terminated for the victims. In contrast, the motives and main antecedents that explain managers’ decisions to terminate poor performers have not been fully researched. Studying termination decisions from a managerial perspective is important because, despite many people’s belief that termination decisions are solely based on employees (poor) performance, practitioners have been widely reported that not all bad performers are terminated and sometimes good performers are terminated. Thus, in this research, we aim to better understand the phenomenon of termination from a managerial point of view. In this presentation I report the results of two empirical studies that explore the phenomenon of termination decisions: (a) An inductive qualitative study among 16 professionals with previous experience terminating employees, and (b) a laboratory policy-capturing study with more than 2,800 observed termination decisions.
