About the Course
Termination occurs when an employer or employee ends an employee's employment with a particular employer. Termination can be voluntary or involuntary depending on the circumstances. Texas is an at will state; an employee may be fired for any reason, at any time, with or without cause. Employers do not even have to give a reason for why the employee is terminated from his or her job. To defend against potential charges of discrimination, however, employers are advised to keep documentation even if no case is presented at the termination meeting. This session will review the rights of the charter school in the event of voluntary termination. Involuntary termination and mutual agreement termination as well as best practices in documentation, and communication involved in termination.

She served as the Business Officer of Mosbacher Odyssey Academy in Galveston, TX for eight years. In those years, Odyssey faced many of the Texas Charter School challenges involving money, facilities and creating from scratch the “How To Book” on a Texas Charter School Business Office. Under Karen’s direction, Odyssey Academy went from owing TEA and the IRS over $250,000 and a negative fund balance to a transformed school with a positive fund balance of $3.5 million. Odyssey was able to obtain a BBB- rating and completed a multi-million dollar bond issue, upgrading from a rented church school facility to an owned, newly renovated 73,000 sq. ft. facility.
