Glad to see you in the Community forum, @Jeff Shaughnessy.
I'm here to get you moving in the right direction towards changing your employee's status in QuickBooks. All you need is to go to your employee's profile and update it from there.
- Go to Employees and click the employee's name.
- On the employee's profile, click Actions and choose Employee's leave.
- Choose the Type of leave.
- Enter the Leave information and hit Save.
To help identify which type of leave to choose from, it'd be best to reach out to a tax adviser or an accountant to ensure your payroll records are in order.
Also, the steps may differ if you're using other payroll services, you can check the following resources below for the instructions.
Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help. Thanks for dropping in and have a magnificent weekend.
