Terminating or Dismissing an Employee

Prior to terminating or dismissing an employee, please ensure that you have made all the final payments to the employee. For instructions on how to process termination pay, click here.

To dismiss an employee, follow these steps:

In order to dismiss an employee:

  1. Click on the "People" tab

  2. Select the employee you wish to dismiss.

  3. Click on the "Remove from Payroll" button located in the top right-hand corner.

  4. The display box will show red stars indicating required fields.

  5. Enter the "Employee's Last Day" using the calendar field.

  6. Select the reason for termination from the drop-down menu. Depending on the termination reason, this will impact the employee's eligibility for employment insurance.

  7. Fill out the next three fields if applicable:
    • Salary Continuance End Date: This should reflect the employee's last paid day.
    • Insurance/Benefit Coverage End Date: If the employee does not have insurance or benefit coverage, leave it blank or select the last day worked.
    • Expected Return Date: Provide information only if applicable; if the employee is set to return but the date is uncertain, leave this field blank.

  8. You can also add any additional notes

  9. Lastly, you will be prompted whether you want Knit to file an ROE (Record Of Employment) for this employee. You can select "No" and then click "Dismiss Employee." Alternatively, selecting "Yes" will take you to the ROE screen (For more information, refer to Issuing a Record Of Employment)
