Managing employee terminations within a pay run | Payroll Web Platform

There will be instances where an employee agreement has ended with your organisation and they will need to be off-boarded and terminated. The Terminate Employee feature within a pay run enables you to select an employee and specify their termination date and the reason behind this action. The platform will then apply the correct termination payment to the employee record to make sure you give the correct severance pay to the employee.

The HR platform is the source of truth for your company settings, payroll settings, and employee file data. For you to terminate an employee correctly, you will need to follow a specific process. To read more about how to terminate an employee in the correct order, refer to the following guide.
