New Hires

When a new employee is hired in Zenefits, the sync will add them to the payroll account and push their information, including deductions, bank and tax, and basic information.

For companies who sync payroll accounts with these providers, the sync will read provider-specific fields from the payroll account and make these fields available in Zenefits. Changes made to these fields in Zenefits will sync to the payroll account.


When an employee is terminated in Zenefits, the sync will mark them as terminated in the payroll account.

Zenefits syncs most changes to employee demographic, tax, deduction, and banking information.
