Terminate an employee

  1. Navigate to the Employees > Employees or Contractors tab.

  2. Click the (x) icon next to the employee or contractor you wish to terminate. Note: do not terminate the employee if they still need to be paid. Also, if you are terminating an employee in the middle of a payroll period, you should process their final payment using an off-cycle payroll.  

  3. Last day worked – select a date of termination. Note: this date usually coincides with the last day of work.

  4. Eligible for rehire – select whether the employee or contractor is eligible to be rehired in the future. This is an optional field. 

  5. Disable access (default: No) – set the toggle to 'Yes' if you do not want the terminated employee or contractor to continue to have access to their prior paystubs online. If you leave the default setting as it is, the terminated employee/contractor will be able to view and print past paystubs as well as their Form W-2 / 1099 at year-end. Note: if you disable access, the employer is responsible for printing and mailing / handing out the Form W-2 / 1099 at year-end. 

Once the employee or contractor has been terminated, they will be listed in the Employees > Terminated employees tab.
