  3. Click the Actions button located under the employee’s Job Title in the top left corner.
  4. Under Job Change.

Note: A red asterisk denotes a required field. Click on the pencil icon on the right side of each field to fill out the field, and once you have filled out a field, click the gray check mark to move on to the next field.

  1. For the Primary Reason field, click on the  icon to populate the drop-down menu. Choose either a voluntary termination reason or a student termination reason.
  2. Complete the Termination Date, Last Day of Work, and Pay Through Date fields.
  3. Add comments in the comment box if needed.
