It happens all the time in many retail and restaurant businesses… staff members leave for the season or for another job, so you terminate them. Then, they return at a later time, and you need to rehire employees. In this scenario, it is often useful to reactivate a terminated employee to minimize re-entering all of the staff member data. You can only rehire an employee who is eligible for rehire. Employees are always eligible for rehire, unless you have indicated otherwise on that employee’s Employee Information page.
Here is a quick explanation of the steps involved to rehire employees.
View terminated staff members.
Click on the check box next to “Show Terminated Employees.” If you want to look for employees who have worked a specific position, then choose the desired position in the drop down box next to the “Show” button.
Then, click the “Show” button.
Locate the employee to rehire.
Find the terminated staff member that you would like to rehire. Then, click on “Edit.“
Remove the “Termination Date.”
Remove the termination date from the “Basic Employee Information” page.
Remember to click “Save” at the bottom of the page to reactivate the staff member.
