Employer Portal - Documents

The Documents utility allows users to upload, store and manage key employee and HR related documents securely in Thesaurus Connect.

It can be used for example to upload employee documents such as individual contracts of employment, handbooks, appraisal documents, company pension information, company newsletters and disciplinary correspondence. In addition, users may also like to use the document utility to store employee training certificates and qualification records.
