You can re-activate a terminated employee from the Personnel Overview page by using the Re-activation feature.


You can only use the re-activation feature if the employee status shows as terminated.

Reactivating a terminated employee will allow you to keep the employee's original login/account email. When the reactivated employee logs in again, it's important that you remind them to update any personal details which may have changed.

Re-activating an employee

  2. Click the Actions button.
  3. Click the Re-active Employee button.
  4. Choose from the following options:
    • No, I do not want to trigger onboarding checklists.
    • Yes, I want to trigger onboarding checklists.

So you have now re-activated an employee and you are now wondering, what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • HR Employee File: Certifications This feature allows your employees to complete their assigned certifications, update the data if it expires, and view a history log of their uploaded documentation.
  • HR Employee File: Banking Details This feature allows you to add an employee bank account, specify the account number, and how much to pay into each of their accounts.
