Add PTO liability to a final paycheck

Zenefits Payroll doesn't automatically add unused Time Off to the last paycheck. When terminating someone who works in a state which requires payout of accrued but unused Time Off, follow these instructions to determine Time Off liability, then add the liability to the pay stub using one of the options below. 

  • Create a custom earning using one of your regular earnings categories, and label it Vacation/PTO Payout to add to a normal run
  • Pay out PTO liability on an off cycle using the Vacation earning type that is auto populated by the system
