If you choose to provide a personal gender identity along with your legal gender during onboarding, Zenefits will display it along with legal gender in your Basic Information in the Personal Information card.
No. Currently, Zenefits doesn't support international phone numbers for Emergency Contacts.
You have the option to select (from a dropdown menu) which personal pronouns Zenefits should display for you. Like your gender identity, Zenefits will display your pronouns in your Basic Information in the Personal Info card. Unlike your gender identity, which is visible only to you, your personal pronouns are visible to your coworkers, manager, and admin in your profile page.
While Section 1557 of the ACA prohibits discrimination in health care coverage on the basis of sex, insurance carriers still request an employee's sex when collecting basic demographic information about individuals applying for coverage. Government agencies also collect this information. For example, the Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission (EEOC) collects gender for federal reporting purposes. However, these agencies consider this information to be protected and confidential information.
Zenefits uses this information to satisfy EEOC reporting requirements and to complete an employee's application for coverage, and collects it as "legal gender," during the onboarding or enrollment process. Employees with a gender identity that differs from their legal gender have the option to voluntarily specify a gender identity before and after onboarding to Zenefits.
