Why are employer contributions in the employee pay templates in Zenefits Payroll?
In Zenefits Payroll, the Contributions section of a pay template lists all recurring employer contributions towards an employee's benefits that will show up in an employee's paystub in all regularly scheduled runs. This section includes both contributions automatically added by Zenefits and any manually added contributions, e.g., for benefits provided outside of Zenefits.
- Contributions managed through Zenefits can be identified by the lock icon and cannot be edited.
- Contributions that were manually added to an employee's pay template can be identified by the delete icon. Click this icon to remove the contribution item.
- Contributions manually added to an employee's pay template will show up in an off-cycle run if the Include Contributions and Deductions option is selected.
