Register Employee as a Leaver

- People Inc. manages a wide variety of employee-related information; each employee record will include information about absence, pay and benefits, training, etc. When an employee is marked as a leaver, all of these records need to be reconciled. This not only ensures that any 'future' bookings that have been added do not remain within the system, but also that the headcount and reporting structure is updated.
