How do I terminate an employee within a pay run via the Payroll platform?

Available for the following Payroll plans: Standard, Premium

There will be instances where an employee agreement has ended and you need to offboard and terminate. You can do this within a pay run using the Terminate Employee feature, which lets you select the employee and specify their termination date and reason. The platform will then apply the correct termination payment to the employee record to make sure you give the correct severance pay.
