Setting Up Contractor Non-Disclosure Agreements

The instructions below only apply to companies who use the Contractors app on their dashboard.


Zenefits offers a default IP/non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for contractors. To upload a custom NDA, click the Contractors app, then Templates, and click +Add Template, and upload the new template. Here are some tips on making a custom template.

  • Make sure the file is a Word document or other text editor file type. PDFs can't be converted.
  • Indicate the area the dynamic text should display. This is best done by marking the item in bold, highlighting, or [brackets]. Click here for a list of available fields.
  • It takes up to 3 business days for Zenefits to convert a template.
  • All templates require an official signature from someone who is authorized to sign contracts on behalf the company. Make sure to enter a signature, or have someone with authority enter a signature.

Contractors can be hired in Zenefits with or without agreements, but it is best to have all contractors review and sign agreements before they onboard in Zenefits.
