I might need to term an employee for performance (located in CA). The term meeting will be conducted remotely via Zoom with her manager as well so he can go over the term reasons and I will be covering HR stuff (term paperwork, benefits, paycheck, COBRA, etc). It will be my first time terminating someone, let alone doing this virtually. Any advice?

My senior rarely answers my initial emails/Skype messages/etc. Little background: He’s on another client so I know he’s likely busy but it makes it somewhat difficult to get things done. Any tips on how to manage this? It’s getting to the point where I feel like a pest/uncomfortable following up on unanswered messages. I’ve been compiling questions, utilizing other team members, communicating with managers, but there are some things that just need to go through him because he’s the senior.
