Timelines for Payroll Changes Pushed by Zenefits

Most updates made in Zenefits are typically pushed to the payroll system within 1-2 business days.

Employee Information

Changes to the following employee information will normally push to the payroll account within 1-2 business days:

  • Deductions
  • Salary information
  • Payroll information
  • Address change
  • Name change

For example, a change made on Monday will be pushed on Tuesday or Wednesday, but a change made on Friday won't be pushed until the next Monday or Tuesday.

New Hires

New hires are pushed to payroll 1-2 business days after the hire date entered into Zenefits.

  • Onboarding for a new hire must be completed before information can be pushed.
  • If the hire date has already passed, the new hire is pushed over in 1-2 business days. For example, an employee actually began on 1 /12/16, but was hired in Zenefits on 1 /13/16. This employee will be pushed to payroll by 1 /15/2016.


Terminations are normally pushed same-day, on the termination date. If the termination date has already passed, the termination is pushed within 1 business day. After termination, Zenefits will no longer push modifications made in Zenefits to payroll.
