Payroll - choose Hours but should have selected Sick Leave
I have the details you need about changing the direct deposit (DD) paycheck info of your employee, @MattApap.
Yes, you can still edit the "worked hours" to "sick leave" for a processed DD paycheck. It won't involve the employee and the bank since there will be no difference in their net pay. Just select the Paycheck Detail button to make the change.
Also, you can always view the status of your employee's DD paycheck. It helps you ensure that they will get paid on time. The statuses are Sent to Intuit, Sent to Bank, and Payroll processed. Just go to Employees from the top menu. Then, select View Payroll Run Status. To learn more about this process, visit this article: Check DD Status.
Additionally, I'd want to make sure this issue will be taken care of. You've mentioned above that the "worked hours" increase your employee's sick leave. Can you share with me on which page in QuickBooks are you referring to this? This way, I can provide you an accurate solution to resolve it. Just click the Reply button below to add some details.
I'm just a comment away if you need further assistance. Take care always, @MattApap.
