What compensation types does Zenefits support?

Currently, Zenefits supports only hourly or salary compensation methods, and does not provide a way to hire workers paid solely by commissions, per diem or per-piece ("piecework"), or other such compensation methods.

  • Workers who are hired in Zenefits must have either a base salaried or hourly rate.
  • Workers without base compensation may be hired, but must be assigned a $1 salary or hourly rate. Their actual compensation must be handled directly in payroll.
  • However, companies who use Zenefits Payroll can manually add additional (e.g., non-salaried or hourly) compensation, such as commissions, directly to workers' paystubs.
