Why are deductions in the employee pay template in Zenefits Payroll?

In Zenefits Payroll, the Deductions section of an employee's pay template lists all recurring deductions that will show up in an employee's paystub in all regularly scheduled pay runs. This section includes both deductions automatically added by Zenefits, and any manually added deductions, e.g., for benefits that Zenefits doesn't manage.

  • Deductions managed through Zenefits can be identified by the lock icon and cannot be edited.
  • Deductions that were manually added can be identified by the delete icon. Click this icon to remove the deduction item.
  • Deductions added to a pay template will show up in an off-cycle run if the Include Contributions and Deductions option is selected.
