Variable Compensation and Payroll

After setting up the variable compensation type for a worker, you'll want to ensure that the corresponding pay type is ready for the next pay run.

Zenefits Payroll

For three of the variable compensation types (owner's draw, bonus, and commission), there will automatically be corresponding pay types available in Zenefits Payroll. If you set up a variable compensation under "Other", determine if a new pay type should be created. There is no default Variable Compensation - Other pay type.

Other Payroll Providers

You'll want to work directly with your payroll provider to ensure that you can run payroll with your workers' variable compensation types.
