How do I make an employee inactive? I can't find an action pull down to make them inactive.

Glad to see you in the Online Community, cshankle.

 

Changing your employee’s status can be done by going to the Employment section. Let me guide you through the steps.

 

  1. Tap the Workers menu on the left panel and select Employees to open the My Payroll page.

  2. From there, click on the employee’s name to view its profile.

  4. Click the drop-down and choose Not On Payroll.

  5. Press Done to save the changes.

When running payroll, you'll no longer see the worker's name in the Employees list window.


For additional information, check out the Add, edit, or inactivate an employee article. It provides an overview on how to manage your worker’s employment status.


Let me know if you have any clarifications or concerns. I’m here to help and make sure you’re taken care of. Enjoy the rest of the day.
