Terminate an employee

Updated Oct 25, 2020

In addition to the simple ways you can do things like create an employee profile and track attendance, TimeForge makes common HR tasks, such as hiring and terminating staff, a simple one-click process. The process involved to terminate an employee is very easy, and it is similar to how you would edit an employee's schedule. There are two ways to terminate an employee. By clicking the "Terminate" link or through the "Edit" link on the "Employees" page. The "Terminate" link will immediately terminate the employee. The "Edit" link provides you the option of setting a terminate date.

Here is how you can easily terminate staff as necessary at your business.

Open the Employees tab and select Employees from the dropdown menu

Locate the employee to terminate

To terminate an employee on a date other than today, go to the next step. Otherwise, find the employee that you would like to terminate, and if you want to terminate this employee today, click on the red Terminate link.

Locate the employee to terminate.

After you have terminated the staff member, they will appear on the employees list until the next day, but the red "Terminate" link will be removed.

Terminate an employee from their profile

You can also terminate an employee from their profile. To access their profile, click the Edit link on the row (if in List view) or simply click the employee's card (if in Grid view, shown here).

Look for the field titled Termination Date. Enter the date on which you wish the staff member's employment to end.

After you have terminated the staff member, they will appear on the employees list until the next day, but the red "Terminate" link will be removed.

If you terminate an employee this way, you can set the termination date to a future date, rather than today's date. This TimeForge feature will allow you to easily manage seasonal help or someone who has given notice that they are leaving the company.

Don't forget to click Save at the bottom of their profile when you're finished!

Rehire an employee

To rehire an employee, all you have to do is remove the termination date.
