Termination types

Termination types are a commonly used tool for HR administrators to track the nature of historical terminations, e.g., in the event that a previously terminated employee reapplies to the same company.

There are two main termination types: Voluntary (Regretted or Non-Regretted) and Involuntary:

  • Involuntary: the company elects to end the employment relationship; fired or laid off
  • Voluntary (Regretted or Non-Regretted): employee elects to end employment; resignation 
  • If Voluntary is selected you will be asked, Would you hire this employee again?

There is no legal requirement for reporting termination types, but some states have specific requirements for furnishing a worker's final paycheck according to the type of termination.
