Terminated Employee

An Employee that has been mark Inactive/Terminated, will still appear in all other Tabs, until the end of the Pay Period in which Termination occurred.

Example: This employee was marked Terminated on 9/9/2015.

In the following screenshot, we are viewing the Pay Period where 9/9/2015 (Date of Termination) falls under and the Employee’s data is still accessible in the Dashboard Timecards. This is so that you may view the Employee’s time in/out, as well as any Reports to print out Employee data and/or the Export file to Export Payroll data for the remainder of the Pay Period.
