In the case of temporary foreign employees, a Work Permit is assigned to them with an expiry date. In relevance to the employer, this will span from the start of employment up until the document's end date, which is determined by the document expiry date. 

This will not affect the termination date of the employee in any way, therefore a termination date must be set accordingly. To read more about Employee Termination, click here.

To set up the work permit expiry date, from the Payroll tab, go to 'Employees.'

Double-click (or select and click on 'Edit') on the employee that you wish to set the work permit expiry date for. The end date can be entered in the 'Work Permit End Date' field, in the 'Employee Details' section..

To enter the date, click on 'Edit,' and amend the date.

Save your changes by hitting Enter, or clicking on 'Save.' 

The date will then be included in the Work Permit system calendar, which can be viewed in the 'Calendar' tab.
