What processes do i need to complete when staff finish as our employee?
MBIE have some really great resources all for when an employee leaves your business, including checklists!
They've also got a whole section on employing and managing staff.
It looks like a great little website with helpful resources.
Was it an amicable resignation?
Either way, I've used two really good services to check that i've done everything correctly.
Employment New Zealand- it lets you know what to do for final pay or if it's a bit messy, what you're obligated to do.
Employerline - It's free and they only talk to employers (it literally tells you to hang up if you're not an employer!).
it's taken me a few years but I'm starting to get the hang of it!
There are 2 main things I tick off my list on the last day of employment.
Final pay - include any accrued leave (doesn't include sick leave)
Exit interview - hopefully gives you insight into what worked well / what didn't
I've also surreptitiously glanced through an ex-employee's ute as he had tried to take a chainsaw on his 2nd last day.
