Creating a Customized Time Off Policy in Zenefits

In Zenefits, base plans for limited and unlimited time off policies are built and customized through a number of options.

  • During policy setup, administrators can also import existing time off balances and assign the policy to specific workers.
  • After setup is complete, Zenefits will email those workers to let them know about their new plan.

All time off policies in Zenefits support:

  • Reporting by date range, period or balances.
  • Upload existing time off balances during or after policy setup.
  • Calendar feed for direct reports (for managers only) or all subordinates (for managers and admins) that integrates with:
    • Google Calendar
    • Apple Calendar
    • Outlook
  • Automatic calculator for time off liability to be paid in last paycheck, if required by state law.
