To make a contractor inactive, you can change their employment status so they don't appear in the Create Paychecks page. The contractor pay history is stored making it easy to reactivate them at a later date.
To make your contractor inactive:
- Go to the Employees tab.
- From the Status column, click the contractor status where it says Active.
- Under Payment Information check the box for Inactive.
- Click OK. On any page, an asterisk next to the contractor's name means they're inactive.
When your contractor returns, see Contractor: Reactivating a contractor whose name is missing
