Any tips on Firing someone?
Will have to do it Wednesday and it's going to come as a shock to the person for sure. It's my first time ever having to do this.
General performance issues, lack of development and fit, small business changing directions and I cannot keep this person on payroll.

Any tips out there OT?...also this person is a highly emotional female

What is your field?

Do you work for a woman?

Blame it on the hire-ups.

If they have performance issues then why is it a surprise?

Pull your balls and dick out and slap them on the desk. Then you say "your move". This will cut the tension and you can gauge her interest.

I've done plenty. They aren't fun. Be direct, to the point, don't ramble on. Do what you need to do and ask them to leave.

Get HR involved and document reasons.

Keep it short and to the point. Don't discredit yourself by saying things like "This is really out of my hands" or "I am being told to do this".

Wait till Friday afternoon for sure.

I know it's too late now but you clearly haven't managed this person correctly.

Short of someone doing a random one time act that is worthy of being fired, it should never come as a shock to a person to be fired for ongoing performance issues. This person should have been coached along the way and at some point known they were on their last chance and couldn't frick up any more.

What happened there?

Best tip...do not do it alone, under no circumstances. Have quantifiable data to show that person's performance is not up to par, reference any past talks(though from your post, it sounds like that may not have hapened)

1 more, if this person works out in a cubicle or just generally visible to others, it's usually best to do it last thing at the end of the day IMO. Depending on the situation, you may need to call a meeting as well with your team not to discuss her specifically, but general terms about the need for performance and blah blah blah.

Have at least two higher ranking company employees present

Rip the band aid off. She sits down..."Sally, we're going to let you go".

Keep the conversation to a minimum.

Follow company policy to a T

That's all I got.
