Also, You can select just pay that one employee, Even though all the names of the populate when you select the pay cycle.
Thanks for getting back to us, UniversityAZ,
I can add a bit more about paying a terminated employee in QuickBooks.
Paying a terminated employee ahead of their pay schedule can be done in just a few clicks. You'll only need to edit the Regular schedule directly from the employee's profile. Here's how:
Once done, you can now pay the employee using a different payment date. I've added a great article here for your reference with creating payroll checks in QuickBooks Online Payroll: Create paychecks in QuickBooks Online Payroll and Intuit Online Payroll
That should get you on the right track, UniversityAZ. Please let me know if you need further assistance with the process. I'm here to lend you a helping hand any time. All the best!
It is kind of ridiculous for the amount of money we pay for the software, it doesn't calculate for you according to termination date. Manually calculating will result in possible errors. Any plans to automate this????

I paid an employee on 4/7/23 who had been terminated on 4/3/2023. We received a message that QB could not sync our payroll entries. Can I just change his termination date to the day he was terminated?
see message below from QB:
You can’t modify transactions for deleted employees. If you didn’t mean to delete them, restore the employee and then modify. If you did mean to delete them, undo the transaction.
I'll share with you information on what you can do.
Inactive employees can cause errors in syncing payroll entries in QBO. To sort this out, you'll want to activate the inactive employees. Then, inactive them again after syncing.
1. On your QBO account, go to the Payroll section.
2. On the Payroll page, select the Overview tab.
3. Errors can be seen in the TO DO LIST box.
4. Select the View details to see the needed information to be fixed.
To activate inactive employees, follow these steps how:
1. On the Payroll page, select the Employees tab.
2. In the Active Employees dropdown, choose All Employees.
3. The exclamation point indicates inactive employees.
4. Click the employee to edit, and enter missing information.
5. Select the Action dropdown on the employee's page, then click Change status.
6. Choose Active to activate them on the payroll.
Additionally, you can run some payroll reports in QuickBooks. This way, you can get a closer look at your business's finances and view useful information about your business and employees.

Yes, @Richard. Once you change the status to active, it will alter automatically in QuickBooks Online Payroll.
When you toggle it from terminated to active, it will sync automatically on your employee's profile.
I'm showing you a screenshot below to see the difference:
