“Some human-resource managers screen a departing employee's email for any kind of red flag that the person might say something inappropriate.”

Julie Redfield, talent management expert at PA Consulting Group, provides her views about what employers should do when employees exit companies – and how to make sure their last farewell is appropriate.
