Hi there, flabu2. Thank you for getting in touch with the Community during these difficult times. It can be hard when you're forced to lay off employees. I can help with any issues you're having making these changes in the product.

If employees are laid off, you have a couple options to change their status in QuickBooks. You can either set them as Terminated or Not On Payroll. If you change them to one of these two statuses, the following will apply:

  • You'll no longer be charged for those employees.
  • They won't display in your active payroll, but their profiles and records will remain in your account.
  • Any pending direct deposits will still process for the workers unless the check is deleted.
  • Their names still appear in reports, but will be marked with an asterisk indicating they're inactive.
  • They will still have access to Paycheck Records and Workforce.

Here's a helpful article which has a bit more detail: Deleting or Terminating Employees
