Think we need a little more info to determine this one... For example, did you give enough warnings etc before firing? There's generally a protocol to be followed in dismissal, just need to know if you followed it or not :)
You fired him over the phone. Why involve the police, unless he threatened to bomb the place?
One of my coworkers got fired over the phone and he promptly told my boss to watch his back. (They were on speaker phone and I could hear them through the wall since my desk was next to my boss' office). My boss then told him if he ever sets foot on company property again the police will be called.
As far as I know one cannot decline being fired. Mail him his last paycheck and you probably don't have to worry about seeing him again because, if he hasn't been showing up for work he definitely won't now.
No state that I'm aware of REQUIRES notice for termination if you're fired for *cause* (e.g. job abandonment). Notice sometimes has to be given of no-cause terminations (like layoffs), especially ones impacting several employees. JA firings are usually the easiest because the employee is presumed to know they need to work.
VagueEel, I live and work in AZ as an accountant and part of my job is payroll. There is no requirement for warning of a firing. You don't have to give the employee warnings verbal or written before firing if they are violating company policy. My company has in its handbook that 2 days of no call no show is an automatic firing as do most others I know of.
I apologize, I misread the article I was reading. Some businesses have clauses in their employment contracts stating that an employee cannot be fired without notice or reason. it's not a state based thing but a contract between the employee and business. sorry about that! but thank you for correcting me, it lead me to do some much more intense research between the relationships of a business and an employee (really, why wasn't this stuff taught in school?)
Imagine what he'd be like if a girl tried to break up with him... yikes!
