What is an Agent of Service?

An agent for service of process (also known as the registered agent) is the person or company designated to accept service of process on behalf of the company. The defendant must be "served" with court papers, which give the defendant notice, before a lawsuit can have legal effect. Many companies choose to make the CEO, President, or another senior-level executive the person designated with the responsibility to receive service of process for the company. 

Zenefits is not your agent for service. Your company may not be required to have a registered agent for service, but you must list someone in this field whom you are designating to receive legal documents on behalf of the company.
