Manage your manager's permissions (as an admin)

Manager permissions are available on the Plus or Premium plan—legacy plan options have varied availability of this feature. Admins can upgrade their plan at anytime. 

For now, manager permissions are set at the global level and apply for all managers at your company. If you want to set up specific permissions by user, you can explore setting them up as an admin with specific role permissions.

A manager's permissions determine what they're able to see and do in Gusto within their direct and indirect reports' profiles—this also includes profiles of other team members assigned to them, like domestic and international contractors. All managers can approve hours for time off requests for non-contractor employees, but cannot create projects for time tracking.
