Can volunteers be terminated?  
Although most program managers dread the thought of having to “fire” a volunteer, there are some instances where terminating a volunteer is necessary. Obviously, termination should be used as a last resort, following counseling, corrective action, retraining, etc. However, if the performance of the volunteer is such that the organization’s ability to provide quality service or products is hindered, it is the program manager’s responsibility to correct the situation. The same respect and fair treatment should be given to both paid and unpaid staff members. Be professional about the situation. Meet in private to preserve the dignity of the volunteer and yourself. Be direct and firm. Provide any administration details associated with the termination. It is important to have policies and practices in place that promote accountability and standards among your volunteers and paid staff and the program manager’s job to enforce them.
