How do I deactivate an employee?


All information, including records of past shifts, will remain in the system, and if necessary employees can be reactivated at a later point in time. You cannot delete employees completely.

In the People section, find the employee and click the edit icon to the right.

Deactivate immediately: Click here if you intend to deactivate the employee with immediate effect.

Deactivation date: If you choose a date in the past, the employee will be deactivated immediately. If you select today's date, the employee will have access to the system for the rest of the day. If you select a date in the future, the employee will have access to the system right until that date. 

Optional description of cause: If you wish, you can fill in an additional comment to keep you and your fellow managers up-to-date on the reason for this employee’s termination.
