Employee Documents - How to create from the Employee Record



There are two ways that you can create employee documentation from our templates, via a Checklist or directly from the Employee's Record. 

Documents can be created directly within a candidate, contractor or employee record.

We do however strongly recommend that you you refrain from using this method if there is an applicable Checklist to utilise. Checklists go beyond creating employment documentation in isolation but also account for the complexities that businesses may experience when managing employment matters. The creation of documents via checklists will ensure that your business is compliant and meets best practice standards at all stages throughout the process.
