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 2 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 whether you’d hire the 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.
