Zenefits billing for paid plans are based on per employee per month charges. These charges include the following employee types:
- Full Time Employees
- Part Time Employees
These all count towards the employee count.
If you are on an annual contract and terminate an employee, that will free up "seats" which can be filled as you hire new employees.
For annual contracts, Zenefits will not be able to issue refunds for seats occupied by employees terminated after the billing date.
For monthly contracts, Zenefits will bill based on the number of employees on each invoice date. There are no partial refunds for mid-month terminations.
Please note that there is a 5 employee minimum. This means that if you have less than 5 employees, you will still be charged for 5.
Contingent workers follow a different pricing pattern. More details can be found in this section.
