I need to make an employee “inactive” for a short period of time, but would like to add him to a payroll in the near future. What’s the easiest way?

Go to Add/Edit Standard Earnings and Deductions. Select the employee and mark all the earnings and deduction records as “Inactive”. Be sure to remove the last paid and last taken dates from the earnings and deductions records. When this employee is to be paid again, simply return to Add/Edit Standard Earnings and Deductions and mark the respective records as “Active”. The employee will then be part of the next payroll that contains his or her respective “frequency” (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly etc.).
