How do I create a final check in Zenefits Payroll

When completing the termination details in Zenefits for an employee paid through Zenefits Payroll, make sure to select "Yes" when Zenefits asks if you'd like to mark the employee as terminated in payroll.

  • If you need to pay the employee sooner than their next regular pay date, remove them from the next regular pay run and then run an off-cycle termination payroll. You'll need to manually enter all earnings, but you can have Zenefits Payroll include normal deductions and contributions.

For more information, see this guide to terminations in Zenefits Payroll. Remember that state regulations for last paychecks vary, and some states (e.g., CA) require you to provide employees with their final paycheck on their last day.
