End an employment for WFM

Handle employees that end their employment correctly to ensure that they are not scheduled after their last day of work and that they cannot log in after their employment has ended.

Define a leaving date instead of deleting the employee to keep the person history up to a certain extent. This is important to cover all data in reporting, including the data of agents who have left the company.

When you save the leaving date, all agent-related schedule data is removed immediately for dates after the leaving date. This includes all scheduled shifts, absences, entered preferences and availabilities. The logon credentials are purged seven days after the leaving date of a user or agent. This makes it easier to re-use credentials if needed.

The data retention time frames in your installation can be configured on agreement with Calabrio to automatically pseudonymize agents a certain number of months after their leaving date. The agent can also be automatically deleted a define number of years after the leaving date.

The standard purge settings for new installations is to pseudonymize personal data after three months and delete the employees that has left the company three years after their leaving date. This time frame is a balance between usability and legitimate purpose on one hand and the agents’ right to privacy and deletion on the other. If needed, the purge settings can be adjusted with the help of Calabrio support or a Calabrio business partner.

An agent that has been pseudonymized will not be re-activated by removal of the leaving date nor seen in reports.
