Below is a step by step guide to setting up the integration, as well as some helpful information for how Justworks Hours and Gusto work together once connected.

1) Sign In to your Justworks Hours management dashboard and select "Integrations" from the main menu at the top of the screen.

2) Go to the Gusto listing and click the green "Connect" button to start the integration. A new window will open and you will be prompted to sign in to your Gusto account. If you do not have a Gusto account, you will need to set one up.

6) You can also pull Work Locations from Gusto into Justworks Hours and set them up as Offices. In Justworks Hours, Offices are where you set overtime preferences, time zone and work week start date; you can then assign employees to a specific Office. This ensures that all your employees, regardless of what state they work in, are seeing shifts in the correct time zone and are having their overtime calculated based on the correct labor laws. Follow the same matching/adding method for Locations/Offices that you did for Employees above.
