How To Rehire a Terminated Employee

The 101.

From time to time a previously terminated employee might return to work for you and needs to be rehired on Flare. You can choose whether the returning employee should complete a 'New hire onboarding' process or not by setting the status respectively. 

Note: This is for Flare HR accounts only. Instructions for FlarePay accounts can be found here.

Note: If you don't require the employee to go through an onboarding journey and sign a new contract, change the Status to 'Active' and the Start Date to the rehire date of the employee. Update the rest of the details and Click Update Status. Re-send a Welcome Email and login details to the employee by going to Account > Maintenance > Resend welcome email to employee (step-by-step guide here).
