Learn how to change the status of a terminated employee in QuickBooks or Intuit Payroll. We'll also show you what to do if you layoff an employee or they take a leave of absence.
Letting an employee go can be challenging. But it's important to take steps to keep your records accurate. After you give an employee their final paycheck, go into your payroll system and change their employment status. Here’s how to change employee statuses from any QuickBooks or Intuit payroll product.
Step 1: Issue the final paycheck
Create and give your employee their final paycheck. Once you do, you can update their employment status.
Step 2: Change an employee status
Terminated employees no longer appear on your active payroll list. However, their profile and pay records remain in your accounts and still appear on reports.
Note: If you don't have paychecks created or pay history added for an employee, you can also delete their profile from your payroll product.
