How to push Time & Attendance hours to Gusto
For Administrators and Employees
For companies who sync payroll with Gusto, all approved Time & Attendance hours will be pushed once per pay period. Companies that do not have synced payroll can run manual reports. Please note that Time & Attendance will sync for companies using Gusto only.
Hours are pushed to payroll at 12: 00 PM local time on the day that the approval period ends. Consider the following examples:
- Fezziwig Warehouse, Inc's pay period ends on Friday, and their approval period is set at one day. Approved hours will not push to payroll until Sunday at 12: 00 PM local time, based on work location.
- Scrooge & Marley, Ltd's pay period ends on Friday, and their approval period is set at two days. Approved hours will not push to payroll until Monday at 12: 00 PM local time, based on work location.
Expediting Push to Synced Payroll
Zenefits cannot force an early push of hours to payroll before the pay period ends. Administrators will need to generate a report and update the hours in their payroll system manually. This is true for all companies. However, you do have the ability to push hours to payroll earlier than 12: 00 PM as long as the pay period is over.
Hours Pushed for Different Pay Schedules
Companies with an active sync using Gusto can have hours pushed based on an individual pay schedule.
Hours Pushed for Workers Enrolled in T&A
Regular and overtime hours will not sync for workers. You can use the Reports in the Time & Attendance app to get the hours that need to be added to payroll.
Hours Pushed After Termination
Time & Attendance will not push hours for workers who are terminated during a pay period. Hours for these workers should be entered manually into payroll.
Some states (e.g., California) require that workers receive a final paycheck on the date of termination. Since Time & Attendance normally pushes hours at the end of a pay period, these hours would not be available in payroll for anyone who was terminated in the middle the pay period.
