Use the dropdowns to learn how to edit an employee's work address, job title, and/or switch their compensation classification (hourly, salaried, or commission). You can learn how to update an employee's personal details (e.g., home address, phone number, etc) in this article.
If you're an employee, you can update some of your own information.
Admins with the required permissions can update an employee’s work address, and view work address history from the Job & Pay tab of their employee profile in Gusto.
When a new employee is hired, the work address entered during onboarding becomes their current work address (unless changed), and their hire date will be the date shown as the “Working here since…” timeframe in their profile.
Reminders for employees with only one address on record
If an employee has only one address in Gusto, and you change the start date of that address to a date after their hire date, Gusto won’t have a work address on record for the time frame between their hire date and the date you updated the start date to be. Click Change address and add a new address for the employee to account for the date gap.
If the “working here since” date is incorrect, you may need to make two updates:
With multiple locations on record, you should now see a "Work Address History" below the current work address on file.
The "Work Address History" section will contain address history once a second work address has been added for an employee—click Change address under the current work address to add a new address if the employee is only showing one.
To edit the work address history:
The future work address will appear in the "Work Address History" section, where you can edit the address or start date as needed.
Administrators with the required permissions can edit an employee's job title from their admin Gusto account. If you do not see the option to change an employee's job title, reach out to the primary administrator of your company's Gusto account.
Bulk edit multiple employees' job titles
If your employee's classification is changing, update this in Gusto using the instructions below.
If the employee is meant to be a contractor, convert them rather than updating their employee-classification.
Important: If you're using multiple pay schedules, there may be a gap or overlap in the employee's hours for this payroll.
Administrators with the required permissions can edit an employee's hire date by following the steps below.
