QB Issue Resolution:

Error message: “This employee cannot be deleted because it is associated with a time tracking user” or “is used in Unbilled Time activities (Unbilled Charges).”
Answer ID: 6150

If you receive the error message, “This employee cannot be deleted because it is associated with a time tracking user,” make sure there’s no unbilled time. Or you may just be receiving the error message “This employee cannot be deleted because it is used in unbilled charges.” make certain to remove the indicator to bill.

To find all unbilled time tracking activities or unbilled charges:

Click Reports on the left menu.
Search for “Time Activities by Employee Detail”
In the Time Activity Date field in the upper left, select All Dates and click Run Report.
Click on any line that has a Yes in the Billable column.
Clear the Bill checkbox on the Single Activity Time Sheet and click Save.
Once you save, you’ll be brought back to the report. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for every line that says billable.

Once all the activity is gone you may delete the employee.
