How does a cardholder end their employment relationship with an employer in myRIW?

The article details how you can end a primary or secondary employment relationship with a employer in myRIW.

Important! When you end a primary employment relationship in myRIW (which is effective at 2400 hrs (AEST) or +1 hr (AEDT) of the leave date specified), you cannot use your RIW card to swipe into site until a new primary employment relationship is established. Please ask an Employer to send you an employment request after the specified leave date, which you must accept before using your RIW card.

This instruction applies to the following user roles:

  • Rail Industry Worker (myRIW)


Go to and login using your credentials.


Click on the Employers & Associations tile.


On the Employers & Associations screen, click on the End Employment button for the relationship you wish to end. In the below example, we will End Primary Employment.


On the End Primary Employment pop-up, enter the Leave Date you wish to apply to the relationship. Please note that you cannot enter a leave date in the past, only today's date or a date in future. Click Confirm.


If successful, you will be returned to the Employers & Associations screen, which will show the leave date applied which becomes effective at 2400 hrs (AEST) or +1 hrs (AEDT) of the date applied.

The employer will receive a system notification that you have elected to end your employment relationship.

NOTE: When ending a primary employment relationship and you have a secondary employment relationship(s), the secondary employer(s) will also receive notification that you have ended your primary employment relationship and that they can request to employ you.
