I'm here to help change the status of your employee.
In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you can set an employee to Terminated or Not On Payroll. If you do this:
They will no longer appear in your active payroll, but their profile and pay records will remain in your account.
They can still access Workforce.intuit.com.
You are no longer billed for that employee.
Pending direct deposit will still process unless the check is deleted.
Let me show you how it's done in QBO:
Go to Workers from the left navigation bar.
Find the employee's name and hit the Edit(✎) icon beside Employment.
Update the status appropriately, then click Done.
After you've changed the status to one of these two, options, your employee's names will appear in reports with an asterisk to indicate they're inactive. Here's an article for additional information: Delete or terminate an employee.
Stay in touch with me if there's anything else you need concerning payroll. I always have your back.
We have an employee that is no longer salary, but will come in to help periodically. Her last day was officially 4/30/2020, but she came in on 5/5 and worked for 5 hours for further training of me. We have QuickBooks pro. How do I change her status to temp/hourly and pay her the 5 hours? We may not need her help for a while.
