Accounting for Employees Moved Part-Time to Full-Time

If an employee was moved from part-time to full-time status in Zenefits during their initial measurement period, the employer will need to make this adjustment manually in the Zenefits ACA Compliance app. This is because once they become a full-time employee, they are considered to be “full-time” qualified as soon as their waiting period passes – in this situation, the employer would not wait for the stability period to offer them coverage.

Reporting a Part-Time to Full-Time Move

In this special case, the employer will need to take the following steps:

  1. Log into Zenefits and click the ACA Compliance app.
  2. From the Employee Details table at the bottom of the page, select the employee whose employment type changed.
  3. This will display a pane on the right side. From this pane, select the ACA Details tab.
  4. Select the Edit link on the top right side of the screen.
  5. Go to the month during which their waiting period ends.
    The waiting period starts on the date they were switched from part-time to full-time.
  6. In the Qualification Status field, select Qualified for Insurance.
  7. In the ACA Coverage Requirement field, select Coverage Required.
  8. In the Reason field, select >130 hrs/month worked.
  9. Apply this change to all following months.
