How can I request time off in Zenefits?

To submit a request:

  3. Click Request Time Off.

Mobile App

  1. Log into Zenefits Mobile App, 
  2. Click Time Off 
  3. Click Request Time Off
  4. Select Type of Time Off and dates
  5. Click Submit for Approval

Requests can be submitted for a custom duration. If the account has a minimum increment, workers may only request custom amounts equal to or greater than that minimum increment.

  • By hours, e.g., 2 hours at a time,
  • Half day,
  • Full day, or
  • A series of days.

The number of hours in each day is determined during policy setup.

  • When the request is submitted, hours are deducted from the available balance (pending approval) so they cannot request more than the available balance.
  • For requests over a period of days, any day that is defined as a holiday or a  non-work  day (e.g., Sunday) on the time off policy will not be counted in the calculation of time off required by request.
