Which workers are counted towards the 'Per Employee' pricing?

Zenefits billing for paid plans are based on per employee per month charges. These charges include the following employee types: 
  • Full Time Employees 
  • Part Time Employees 
  • Interns
These all count towards the employee count. International employees hired in Zenefits as international employees will not be counted in these charges. US employees who happen to have an international address or work location will count towards these charges.

If you are on an annual contract and terminate an employee, that will free up "seats" which can be filled as you hire new employees. 

For annual contracts, Zenefits will not be able to issue refunds for seats occupied by employees terminated after the billing date. 

For monthly contracts, Zenefits will bill based on the number of employees on each invoice date. There are no partial refunds for mid-month terminations. 

Please note that there is a 5 employee minimum. This means that if you have less than 5 employees, you will still be charged for 5.

Contingent workers follow a different pricing pattern. More details can be found in this section.
