Having the right tools as an employee to manage how you access your HR platform will reduce the frustrations that arise if, for example, you have a compromised password that needs changing or you can not access your Two Factor Authentication code. These cases can arise if, for example, you change to a new phone and have misplaced your recovery code, or if a malicious actor comprises your password.
The suite of account tools you can access includes a Password Resetting feature that allows to reset your password outside the HR platform, an Account Unlocking feature provides you with the tools to re-access a locked account and the Password Changing feature allows you to reset your password within the HR platform. We also have a Two-Factor Authentication resetting feature, whereby you can enter your recovery question to access your account if you can not access your Two-Factor Authentication code generator.
If you are having trouble accessing your EH account because you no longer have access to the registered email address or having trouble accessing your account with Two-Factor Authentication enabled, your organisation's HR Admin can update your email address or reset your Two-Factor Authentication access via the Security Report feature. If your HR Admin needs further information on this feature, please the send them the following article.
If you are not receiving the reset password link, ensure that you have entered the email address that is linked to the EH account. If you are unsure what your account email address is, please contact your manager or system administrator.

With Employment Hero's 'self-service' features, your employees can reset their own passwords and unlock their account without having to contact their HR administrator.
This is the default access level per user and whether they have view, edit and delete access, excluding any changes made via our Custom Security feature.
The below premise will walk you through how to reset your password, and, 2 factor authentication (2FA), how to change your password, and how to unlock your account.
If you have lost your email invitation to access the HR platform, your employer can resend your invite by following the steps in the following articles:
- Click the Forgot Password button.
- Enter your email and click the Request Link button.
For this process to be effective, you must enter your account email address. If you are unsure what your account email address is, please contact your manager or system administrator.
You will now see a confirmation screen and it will show you the details of where the HR platform sent the reset password link. The reset password email is a one-time link that lasts for 72 hours. The link will not work if you bookmark the link or try to use it again after resetting your password.
- Click the Request to Reset button.

Employment Hero uses a password strength meter to help individuals select their passwords. To save a password, we suggest you use:
- At least eight characters.
- Have at least one uppercase (A-Z) and lowercase character.
- Have at least one numerical character.
- Have at least one special character.
- Add a combination of capital letters.
- Avoid dictionary words or a combination of words.
If the password reset link has expired, it is because either:
- You have previously clicked the password rest link.
- You have logged into Employment Hero in another tab or window.
- You clicked on a link that was not the latest password reset link.
