Terminating and Rehiring an Employee

If an employee leaves the firm, and will not have any further access to PensionPro, users will need to change security settings in the system to remove the employee's access both to PensionPro and PlanSponsorLink.com. This article describes the process to terminate and rehire employees in PensionPro.

Tier Availability: All Product Tiers

Security Rights Required: Add/Edit Employee, Add/Edit Contact

 

Terminating/Rehiring an Employee

Employees cannot be completely removed from PensionPro.

Before users mark an employee as terminated in PensionPro, they will need to reassign any active Tasks and Employee Plan Role assignments to other employees.  Reassignment can be accomplished through either:

  • The Management Dashboard
  • Through Power Tools > Projects > Project/Task Assignments.  

For help with the Management Dashboard, view the Using the Management Dashboard Article.

For help with the Task Assignments Power Tool, view the Using Power Tools Article.

 

Terminating an employee: Once users have cleared the Dashboards and Reassigned the Employee Plan Roles associated with the employee, users can terminate them in PensionPro.  

  1. Click on the Company Directory on the left-hand side, a slider will open.
  2. Double-click on the employee’s name to display their employee details. 
  3. Please note: Users will need to have the security right, “Add/edit employee” in order to access this data. 
  4. Click the edit button on the General Employee Information tab 
  5. Uncheck the Active box.
  6. Enter the Date of Termination in the “DOT” text box.
  7. Click Save. 

This will automatically deactivate their password and security rights so that they can no longer log in to PensionPro.

Removing Active Status for Terminated Employee’s Contact Record: After an employee is terminated, the contact record may be updated to reflect that the user is no longer active. This can be done from the Home tab of the Employee Details screen. To update the Contact Record:

  1. Click the blue linked name of the Contact under General Employee Information.
  2. Click the Edit button to the right of the Contact Details General Information Screen.
  3. When the Edit General Information slider appears, uncheck the Active checkbox.
    • Please Note: deactivating an employee's contact record will also deactivate the employee record found on Employee Details if it wasn't deactivated prior.
  4. Click Save.

Reinstating Employees

If a previously terminated employee is not found in the Search tab, they may be inactive. In order to reactivate an employee’s data in the system, do the following:

Reinstating Active Status for Terminated Employee’s Contact Record: After an employee is terminated from use of the system, the contact record may be updated to reflect that the user is once again active. To update the Contact Record:

  1. Click on the Search Tab.
  2. On the Contacts column, click the Settings (gear) button.
  3. Click the “Include Inactive Contacts” box.
  4. In the Search Box, enter the name of the Employee. Click Enter.
  5. Double-click the Employee's name in the Contact results.
  6. Click the Edit button to the right of the General Information grid.
  7. Place a check in the Active Checkbox.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Click on the Employee's name link next to the Employee field.

  11. Check the Active Box.
