Hello, I'm Charles Galbreath, workforce empowerment speaker and human resource professional. Today, I want to share with you the definition of termination from a job and separation from a job. Now both of those are when you are leaving a position. Now one is when you are booted out and one is when you make the decision to leave. So lets talk about the one where you are asked to leave. That is when you are terminated from a position. When we are terminated from a job that means that for some reason you're not working out with the position. Maybe it's a disagreement with a coworker, disagreement with a supervisor. Maybe you are no longer competent within the tasks you've been offered. And so you are asked to at that point in time to leave. Separation from a position is a different story. It's when you choose to leave on your own terms. Maybe you've received a better position or a different position. Maybe you've decided that the position no longer works out for you. Or you decided that you no longer want to have the interpersonal interaction with a coworker or the supervisor that you have. So the difference in the definition of the two would be when you have job termination is when you are asked to leave based upon performance or based upon interpersonal skills that may be lacking. Or the other would be separation when you are choosing to leave based upon your own decision to move forward within your career. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
