Configure Non-Exempt Hiring Workflow for 2810.5 Notice

For Administrators and Employees

Admins can configure their hiring flow to automatically provide the Non-Exempt Employee Notification (Labor Code 2810. 5 Notice) to hourly employees during onboarding. This notice is required by the Wage Theft Prevention Act.

To turn this option on:

  1. Click on the Hiring application.
  2. Select Settings from the top navigation bar.
  3. Click Non-Exempt Notice on the left-hand side.
  4. Select Manage (or Set up, if this is the first time).
  5. Fill out all fields.

    For the Regular Payday field, enter the pay period, e.g., weekly, biweekly, etc.

  6. For the "Does Your Offer Letter provide" dropdown, choose one of the following options:
    • All rates of pay and bases if the employer has a pay structure that includes additional categories of pay, such as commissions or stipends.
    • Rate(s) of pay for employers with employees who are paid at a fixed rate, i.e., $24/ hr , or 50k annually.
    • No written agreement of rate(s) if there isn't an agreement in place or if there isn't a pay structure specified (unlikely, since Zenefits' onboarding flow requires pay information.)
  7. For the Paid Sick Leave For California Employees option, select Yes if hiring any employees in CA, then select, from the list of descriptions, the policy description that best describes the policy set up by this company for CA employees.
  8. Sign and Save the form. Going forward, the 2810. 5 Notice will be sent to all new hourly hires during the onboarding process.

To turn this option off:

  1. Click the Hiring app.
  2. Select Settings from the top navigation bar.
  3. Click Non-Exempt  Notice on the left hand side.
  4. Click the pencil icon next to Include non-exempt  notices in Onboarding.
  5. Click No, then Save.
