We would like to guarantee one of our employees 40 hours per week. We allocate all the hours worked to customers. If he works fewer than 40 hours in a specific week, how would I enter the guaranteed hours in QuickBooks to get him to 40?

I'll share insight on how you can enter guaranteed hours for employees in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), @s_ham.
In a situation where your employees worked fewer hours, you can use a payroll item to give your employees their guaranteed 40 hours of work. Here's how:
See this article for additional information about this process: Set up an hourly wage payroll item.
If you need to make changes to your payroll items in the future, follow the steps in this article: Edit a payroll item.

Thanks for your help! Would you just name the payroll item "Guaranteed Hours"? I can't think of anything better to call it.
You can name the payroll item whatever you like. I recommend using a name that easily identifies what the hours are being paid for.
Think about if someone is looking at a payroll report in the future, would they be able to easily determine why those wages were paid. In this case “guaranteed hours” works great.
