Two fields have been added under Employee Info to take care of this new requirement.
To speed up data entry for permanent employees, we have added an option to automatically add retirement date based on date of birth. This function is found in the process payroll screen. Enter the retirement age and the software will update all staff with contract end date based on birthday plus retirement age. For staff with contract or other status, you can manually edit the date.
