Quickbooks Online is not allowing me to deactivate an employee. I deleted the employee and then re-added all their information as a new employee and still did not have the option to make inactive. I only have the option to delete the employee.
I have an active payroll membership.
I do not have the "Employment" tab all the support articles refer to.
I can see that you're using QuickBooks Essentials in your previous posts. Let me help you show the option to make an employee inactive.
When you select a worker in the Employees tab to see their information, you should be able to see the Employment section, where you can edit an employee's status. In addition, you'll see the Delete employee option when you're in the Employment window where the Status field is present.
Let me show you how:
On the other hand, you may need to set up your employee initially since you don't have the option to deactivate an employee. In that case, you'll have to enter the worker's data in QuickBooks. Here's how:
After following these steps, you'd be able to see the Employment section and deactivate a worker by following the steps (with screenshots) above.
In case you need to delete or void paychecks first before you can inactivate the employee, you can check this article: Delete or void paychecks.
Feel free to post again or leave a comment below if you have any other concerns with updating employees' status. I'll be here if you need further assistance. Take care and have a great day!
I do not have the "employment" tab you are referring to. Therefore, I do not have the option to change the employees status. I just switched everything from Quickbooks Desktop Pro to Quickbooks Online and it isn't giving me the options you are referring to. I deleted the employee altogether, and then re-added them from scratch in QBO and still do not have that option.
Thanks for taking the time to follow up with us.
