Terminations 2022 was ran on the 13th Nov 2022 and this OnDemand recording provides the full 2 hours of stream along with resource materials.

Employees leave their employment for a range of reasons some they choose and at other times the business does (after following process).  For payroll a termination is an essential payroll activity to get right as it can cause immediate an ongoing issues if not processed and managed correctly.
