Terminating a casual employee (New Zealand)

Normally when an employee is being terminated they are paid any outstanding items in their final pay such as Wages for that final period, Allowances, Outstanding Leave such as Alternative Leave, etc. then the Termination Holiday Pay is calculated and when the pay is updated the employee is terminated.

If an employee is setup as a Casual with the "Pay Casual Holiday Pay Each Pay" option ticked, they cannot be terminated via the normal process as the Holiday Pay screen in a pay is greyed out including the "Pay Termination Holiday Pay" tickbox.

In order to terminate a Casual employee, this must be done manually via File > Terminate/Reinstate, find the employee to be terminated and enter an appropriate Termination date. Click Terminate and a confirmation screen will appear then click Yes and the employee will be terminated.

It is advised to do this manual Termination process once the employee's final pay has been closed or else they will be removed from the open pay.
