Strongly advise to start a new card, for the purpose of Long Service Leave and records are then kept clean

Hi Wendy


For accuracy & to ensure the employee’s record is complete & viable for STP, I’d recommend not starting a new card.


Following termination in RAH, ensure all of their Leave Balances are adjusted to zero in their employee record.


You can choose to “Rehire” a terminated employee & RAH will retain their original “Hire Date”, as well as a “Rehire” date within their record:


Select the applicable employee in your employee list (You may need to change view to display “All” or “Released Employees”)

Right-click their name & select “Hire Employee

RAH will recognise that this is a terminated employee & ask if you want to re-hire (eg “Edit Employee”) retaining all of their original data & giving you a “Rehire” option field which - when “Yes” is selected - autofills the new “Hire Date” along with their “Original Hire Date”. 

It also generates an additional field to enter the “Adjusted Service Date” which is the date used to calculate any benefits.


Whilst the “Adjusted Service Dateshould transfer to the Leave accrual commencement date areas, it may not, so just go to the employee’s applicable Leave tabs & ensure their applicable leave sections are correct for accrual amount, frequency (per hour is best!) & commencement.
