Terminating a casual employee

I am going through the year end processes and as part of this thought about doing clean up on some old left-overs - staff that were employed on a casual basis but have not come back for years. This was before STP, so they are still sitting as inactive - does it matter if I terminate them now with reporting to the ATO? 

None of that will have any bearing on pays or entitlements, so I am not sure if I should just leave things alone? 

  • Hi TomD

     

    For the termination date, it's not necessary to use the exact date. If that is for previous years you can only estimate the time the employee left the company.

    I have this same question.  Some of the casuals may even be re-employed at some point but some have been inactive since 2019

    Thanks for your post and Welcome here in the Community Forum. I hope you find it a wealth of knowledge. In this matter, you may terminate the employee, you would just need to make sure that you have the correct date and year.

      Leneth,

       

      how relevant is the exact date and year.  These were casuals and they have never formally been terminated, so would I take the time to look when they were last paid or pick the 30. June of that particular financial year?

      Do I need to terminate them or can I just forget about them?
