Free labor relations advice for Father Corapi: Negotiate a quick settlement and get on with your business.

Q: How does one typically make a serious problem with a disgruntled ex-employee go away?

A: You have your attorneys promptly negotiate an amicable settlement with all affected parties, typically including withdrawal of any and all statements and/or claims made “in the heat of battle” … groundless or not … plus an ironclad “gag” order … with no admission of fault, on either side … and then, a certain amount of cash changes hands.

Of course, in the Father Corapi case, that would still leave the church investigation to deal with.

For that, a good confession (by all those involved) should suffice.
