You can easily reactivate an inactive employee, @mstablow.


Follow the steps below: 

  1. Click the Workers tab from the left navigation bar.
  2. Select Employees and click the drop-down list showing Active employees, select All employees.
  3. Click the inactive employee.
  4. Select the small pencil icon in the Employment section.
  5. In the Status drop-down, click Active.

 The employee will now be active once again and you're all set.
