Please see this Help Center article for how to modify labor groups in Payroll. 

Reason for inactive Labor Group columns in the Allocation table

Labor groups that the employee is assigned to will be available for selection on the allocation table. If an employee is not assigned to a labor group, that labor group column will be inactive.  

Editing Labor Groups in Payroll

If the employee has their labor allocation set up, any manual edits to the labor groups on draft pay runs are considered one-time changes and will not override allocations on future pay runs.

Changing Labor Allocation for different types of Pay Runs

All labor allocations saved will automatically take effect on future pay runs. For draft pay runs, you can select the “Reset Pay Stub” or “Reset Run” buttons to refresh with the new allocations if the effective date is for a change that already happened or an immediate change.
