Upload and download employee's documents

Updated on May-2023

Employee documents refer to any paperwork or digital files that are related to an employee and are required to be stored by the employer for compliance or other reasons. By maintaining accurate and up-to-date employee documents, employers can ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and have a centralized location to store and manage employee information.

The Employee Documents page in the greytHR Admin portal helps you to view, download, and upload employee documents. The page categorizes the employee documents under Letters, Payslip, Form 16, Company Policies, and Forms tabs.
