It’s April and if you are in the payroll department, you have probably received more than one phone call or email about an employee’s W-2. You mail the employee’s W-2 by January 31, but by April when employees are filing taxes, you are inundated with requests for additional copies. Employees forget to update their address, they misplace the W-2 (although they always blame the spouse or children, right?), or are positive you never sent it out (like we make mistakes ha!).
Scissortail HCM by Kronos has been a lifesaver for me during the month of April. I am no longer held hostage by “snail mail” thanks to Scissortail’s benefits. Did you know that ex-employees can continue to login and retrieve past pay statements and W-2’s at their leisure? That alone is a huge benefit of using Scissortail HCM!
At any time, a past or present employee, can login into Scissortail and complete the following steps to retrieve information:
- Click hamburger icon at the top left (3 lines).
- Click My Account
- Click My Forms
- Choose the form needed i.e. W2s
- Click on the magnifying glass at the left of the row (year) needed.
- Click Download PDF
- Voila – your W2
- *Note: Employee can also click electronic consent at the top right so that the form is only sent electronically.
Besides W-2’s, the employee has access to pay statements at any time as well. Follow the same steps listed above but choose My Pay Statements after Clicking My Account (#2 above). Besides convenience it’s also a secure way for employees to retrieve their information without relying on the post office or having to wait for the information.
