How do I reinstate a previously terminated employee in Reckon Payroll?

I had terminated an employee per Manager request 3 weeks ago as he's uncontactable. Now he returned to work again. How to reinstate the terminated employee for this instance? I am unable to delete the termination date on the employee's profile per Reckon Payroll message box.

    Hi @Kiang

    We've got some new functionality coming to Reckon Payroll very soon that will make handling the situation of rehiring former employees much easier so stay tuned for that.

    However in the interim, the termination date cannot be removed from an employee profile IF a termination pay has also been actioned for that specific employee. Check out the two ways to handle this below -

    👉 Termination pay run has been created in error

    Delete the termination pay run ➡️ Then remove termination date in employee profile

    👉 Employee is returning to employment

    Archive the previous employee profile ➡️ Create new employee profile ➡️ This will require a new unique employee number and display name. It will also create a new entry in the individual's MyGov account for earnings, tax super reported for them via STP.
