How do I archive/remove an employee from payroll?

You can either archive an employee, which keeps their records, or remove an employee, which permanently deletes them.


(i) An employee is archived immediately even if the 'Date of Removal' is in the future. 

(ii) You are only able to permanently delete an employee who has not yet been part of any payroll. 

1. Archive Employee

To archive an employee, you need to click on the 'Employees' tab, select the employee you want to archive and click 'Archive' at the bottom of the page. 

Employees > ‘Select any Employee’ > Click Archive

Select the reason and the date of removal. You may also add an alternative (personal) email address for your records. Further, you can select "Prorate Salary" for any employee who leaves part-way through the month, so their salary is automatically adjusted. 

2. Remove Employee

If you want to permanently delete an employee, first you need to archive that employee following the steps above. Click on 'Archived Employees' and select the employee you want to permanently delete.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click 'Remove Permanently'. A pop-up asking for confirmation will appear; click 'Yes, Delete' to permanently delete the employee. Please remember that this is only possible if the employee was not previously part of any payroll.
