The error occurs if the work type does not exist within your QuickBooks Online platform because of this. Employment Hero automatically disables the work type causing this issue. 


We do not allow you to delete the work type while there is a timesheet linked to this data source.


Adding the work type into your QuickBooks Online platform and then re-syncing the two platforms will resolve this issue.
