How do I make an employee inactive?

What happens when I make an employee inactive?

Making an employee inactive removes the employee from the payroll schedule to which the employee is assigned and from the list of employees that appear in the Unscheduled Payroll windows. Making an employee inactive also removes the employee from the Active Employees list, but does not delete the employee record from QuickBooks. You could inactivate employees who've been terminated or who're on leave, but still keep their record in QuickBooks.

How do I know which employees are currently inactive?

To do this task

  1. Click the Employee Center icon and then click the Employees tab.

  2. In the Active Employees list, double-click the employee you want to make inactive.

  3. In the Edit Employee window, click the Employee is inactive checkbox.

  4. Click OK.

    You can make inactive employees active again at a later time, if you choose to do so.
