The ATO ruling is that if someone returns to work after more than 3 months they're deemed to be a new employee. If this is your situation, it's best to create a new employee card for them and enter their payroll information. You also might want to update the name on the employee's original card to differentiate it from the new card, e.g. add "old" to the name on their original card.

If the employee is being reinstated within 3 months of leaving, you can reuse their original employee card. All you need to do is remove the Termination Date from their card and ensure their payroll details are up to date.
