When do deductions start for new hires

For Administrators and Employees

For employees in synced payroll or Zenefits Payroll, a new hire's deductions for a particular benefit will normally appear in the first paycheck after the effective date for that benefit. However, if an employee enrolls after their effective date and misses the first payroll run, then a pending deduction adjustment will generate. Learn more about how Zenefits determines deduction adjustments.

For companies who use File Sync or Payroll Reports, the timeframe is the same: new deductions will appear in the Deductions report for the period that contains the first paycheck. The pending deduction adjustment tool is not available for File Sync or Payroll Reports. More information about reviewing employee deductions
