Add new employee

Note: You can skip this step if you have New-Hire Onboarding.

  1. On the dashboard you will see Add Employee.

  2. Fill out the employee information.

    Be sure to include the social security number, so that you will be notified if that SSN has previously been used for an active or terminated employee.

    Important: Be sure to enter the Date of Birth or use a default one, such as 01/01/1990. You will not be able to make edits to any fields or add missing information in the personal info box later if there is no DOB.

    For a contract employee, select it in Employee Type. The employee type selected cannot be changed after it is saved.


  3. Click Create Employee Record to save.
