Pay severance to a dismissed employee

When you dismiss an employee, there is an option to pay them severance in a dismissal payroll. If you still need to pay severance, you can process an off-cycle payroll to submit this payment for a dismissed employee:

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Click Show dismissed people.
  3. Click your employee.
  4. Under Additional Payrolls, click Run off-cycle payroll.
  5. Add the severance amount as the Gross Earnings or Net Earnings.
  6. Click Add Personal Note to include a message about severance on your employee's paystub.
  7. Click Save & Continue.
  8. Click Submit Payroll.
