How do I End a Staff Member's Employment or set a Contract End Date?

If a staff member leaves your employment, you can terminate their account without losing their data. 

To do this, navigate to your staff directory.

Once there, locate the staff member you wish to terminate and click the admin cog. Select end employment.

Upon selecting to end employment, a new dialog box will appear. You will notice that this is step 1 of 3.

Step 1 details the employment end datetermination typetermination reason and eligibilty to rehire.

NB: You can add a new termination type or reason by clicking on the cog next to each drop-down box.  


Step 2 details the working pattern of the employee. 

Step 3 details our recommended amount of holiday allowance owed to the employee or company.

By clicking the arrow next to how did we work this out?, you will see a breakdown of our calculations. 

NB: This is only a recommendation. We advise that you check this and make sure you agree with the calculation. If you believe this should be different, you can edit the amount in the holiday days owed to name box. 

If you select update name's allowance to reflect holiday days owed to name?, you will notice that the confirmation button will change from end employment to end employment and update holiday allowance.

Once you have done this, you will notice a notification appear centrally at the top of your screen confirming that staff member will be removed from your staff directory and no longer have access to their account once the end of employment date has passed.
