Pay date for hourly employees

Companies who have hourly employees often choose a pay date that falls after a pay period ends in order to collect and approve hours for each employee and run payroll in time for the payroll due date.

Because many payroll providers require administrators to run payroll four business days before check date, many companies plan at least a week between the last day in each pay period and the check date for that period. These companies pay their employees for work performed in the previous week.

If you are using Zenefits Payroll and Time & Attendance, you must have at least seven days between the end of the pay period and your check date.
