Manual Edits to Employee Hours in ACA Compliance

Admins have the ability to edit all employee hours from the ACA Compliance Overview page. Admins may need to do this for a number of reasons. For example, Zenefits automatically assumes 173 hours per month for all salaried employees (regardless of full-time, part-time, or temporary status), using the Weekly Equivalency Method. This is because companies tend not to track hours for salaried employees. However, if in reality a salaried employee worked significantly less than 173 hours for a given month, the admin can manually adjust their hours worked.

Ongoing Employees in Standard Measurement Period

If the employee is in a Standard Measurement Period:

  1. Log into Zenefits and click the ACA Compliance app.
  2. Scroll and select the Employee Measurement Period tab for the desired year.
  3. Select the Edit icon in the top right. All employee hours will then become editable.
  4. Make any needed adjustments and then click the Save Changes button on the bottom right of the page.

New Hires in Initial Measurement Period

If the employee is in an Initial Measurement Period:

  1. Log into Zenefits and click the ACA Compliance app.
  2. From the Employee Details table at the bottom of the ACA Compliance Overview page, select the employee who needs the adjustment. This will display a pane on the right side.
  3. From this pane, select the Initial Measurement Period tab.
  4. Select the Edit link in the top right.
  5. Type in the changes to the monthly hours for the selected employee.
