Terminate a Contractor

Because contractors do not have “employment” in the same way that W2 employees do terminations are not applicable, however you can mark a contractor as inactive.

You can mark a contractor as inactive using the PUT contractors/{contractor_uuid} endpoint.

     --url{contractor_uuid} \
     --header 'accept: application/json' \
     --header 'authorization: Bearer <<COMPANY_API_TOKEN>>' \
     --header 'content-type: application/json' \
     --data '
