If you've dismissed a contractor, you should make them inactive in Gusto. You can find all inactive contractor profiles in Gusto. Contractors who were paid through Gusto can not be fully removed from our system due to compliance purposes.
If you've rehired your contractor or need to process a payment for a dismissed contractor, rehire them and then pay them.
