Who Can Use the Employment Hero Playground

You can identify that you are in the Employment Hero playground as at the top of the page, you will see a blue banner.

How Long is the Employment Hero Playground Trial

The Employment Hero playground remains active for 14 days. The owner will receive an email notification 7 days into the trial, notifying them of the upcoming expiration of their Employment Hero playground.

After the 14-day period has ended, Employment Hero will delete the expired Employment Hero playground organisation. The owner will receive an email confirmation following the deletion of their playground.

Is there a Limit to the Number of Employment Hero Playgrounds Can I Have

Owners can only have one active playground at a time.

Once an Employment Hero Playground has reached its 14 day expired date, you can then create another Employment Hero Playground.

There is no limit to the amount of Employment Hero Playgrounds you can create, only that one Employment Hero Playground can only be active at once.
