Managing Workplace Safety During Involuntary Employee Separation

The Interagency Security Committee published Managing Risk of Adverse/Involuntary Employee Separations: An ISC Guide - 2024 edition on June 3.

The Interagency Security Committee (ISC) recently published a guide on risk management for adverse or involuntary employee separations, which provides advice and guidance on best practices for conducting employee separation risk assessments, protocol for risk categorization, managing access to facilities and technology systems, remote worker considerations, and post-separation vigilance, amongst other topics.

The 2024 edition of Managing Risk of Adverse/Involuntary Employee Separations: An ISC Guide, was published June 3, 2024, coinciding with the National Safety Council’s (NSC) National Safety Month, and includes recommendations for a risk-based removal and an exit security checklist. 

The guide was developed by the ISC in response to several of its members requesting guidance on how to best manage risk for adverse or involuntary separations. It notes that “managing the risk associated with separating an employee is not a one size fits all proposition,” advising that “involuntary separations due to adverse or other administrative actions pose greater risk,” and organizations should tailor the separation or removal process in these instances to mitigate potential risks.

The ISC highlights the importance of collaboration when developing an organization policy, with security working with human resources (HR), management, legal, and visitor management, among others, to enhance and adapt the risk mitigation best practices described in the guide.

The guide covers three key stages of the involuntary/adverse separation process, detailing best practice in pre-Separation, including risk assessment; separation, including separation considerations for remote employees and federal contractor workers; and post-separation vigilance.
