What feature access does an employee have vs a contractor via the HR platform

There is a significant difference between the features available for independent contractors compared to employees. Contractors will have limited access to features within the Employment Hero platform, and they do not synchronise with an integrated payroll platform.

Helpful Hint

The below permissions detail what features are available to Employees vs. Contractors. Please be aware that you can restrict some features on the platform, for both employees and contractors via the Menu Customisation feature. To read further information on this feature, refer to the following article.
