  2. Select the employee who is being terminated.

  3. Click the calendar that appears in the Release Date column when you select the employee and then select the employee's release date.

  4. Make sure the information and amounts that appear on the pay cheque are correct.

  5. Click Continue.

    A message appears, asking whether you want to make the employee inactive or keep the employee active.
