Tracking Employee Hours By Employment Type

Depending on employment type (e.g., full-time vs. part-time, salaried vs. hourly), Zenefits will utilize different methods to determine the number of hours worked during the measurement period. See below for more information about how the Zenefits ACA Compliance app tracks hours worked based on employment type.

Salaried 

Part-Time 

Zenefits does not measure actual hours worked for salaried employees. Instead, we use the weekly equivalency method to estimate 173 hours worked per month.

Full-Time 

Zenefits does not measure actual hours worked for salaried employees. Instead, we use the weekly equivalency method to estimate 173 hours worked per month.

Hourly 

Part-Time

Zenefits measures actual hours worked, pulled from Payroll SyncTime & Attendance, or manual spreadsheet uploads with information on hours worked.

Full-Time ongoing employees

Zenefits measures actual hours worked, pulled from Payroll SyncTime & Attendance, or manual spreadsheet uploads with information on hours worked. See Ongoing Employees and the  Look-Back  Method for more information.

Full-Time  new hires

Zenefits does not measure actual hours worked for hourly full-time new hires. Instead, we use the weekly equivalency method to estimate 173 hours worked per month. See New Hires and the  Look-Back  Method for more information.
