Work Locations

Before onboarding a W-2 Employee, we'll need to specify where the employee will be working. This is known as a Work Location and is important for taxation purposes. A Work Location is often reused for multiple employees but may also only be used by one employee (often the case for remote employees).

Contractor Onboarding

Work Locations aren't required to onboard 1099 Contractors due to their taxable status. To learn how to onboard contractors, reference our Contractor Onboarding Guide.

    "street2": "",
    "city": "Palo Alto",
