Complete Guide to Locations for Onboarding

Locations in Onboarding are used to denote where a user is to be working or a method to define the group of users. Your locations can be physical locations and/or they can be used to define a specific group of users, such as union/non-union or Spanish/English speaking employees. 

When creating your locations, consider the reason why the location should be added. What is it about your users that requires a unique location? Do the users need to fill out special paperwork? Will your users be managed by a specific manager?

The following guide is intended for the process of adding individual locations. If you need to import multiple locations, you can refer to Bulk Import for Onboarding

Navigating to Locations
  • Click Administration from the top menu bar of Onboarding.


  • In the Administration menu, click Locations.



On the Locations tab, you can:

  • Add a Location
  • Edit/Delete Existing Locations
  • View a list of your locations by their Location #, Location Name, and Phone #

Adding a Location

  • Click Add Location.


  • Fill in the information for the location:
    • Location # - The location number is an identifier. If you already have an identifier, you can enter it here. As this field is required, you will need to create one if you do not already have one.
    • Location Name - Name for the location, such as the name of the branch, city name, etc. (If you are also using Core HR, this field will be passed over as the Facility 1 Name field)
    • Legal Name - The legal name entered can match the Location Name. The Legal Name entered here will populate your W-4 forms.
    • Address, City, Zip Code, State, Country, and Phone # - The information entered here will populate your W-4 forms.
    • Enable E-Verify - If enabled, it will denote that employees at this location will go through E-Verify. (E-Verify requires additional services. If you do not already have E-Verify services and are interested, you can contact your account manager for more information. Please refer to the following article.)
    • Payroll Code - While not required, the payroll code can be entered for reporting purposes.
    • TaxBreak Location ID - Used for the Work Opportunity Tax Credits program and reporting purposes.
    • Federal EIN - Your Federal EIN/Tax ID is required for each location as the location's Federal EIN can differ from the Federal EIN entered in the Settings tab. The Federal EIN entered here will populate your W-4.


  • Click Add when finished.
