Manager permissions allow companies to give managers access to different functions across Justworks. As your company grows, you’ll want to give access to tools to help managers lead their teams and take some of that burden off of your admins. WIth manager permissions, you can enable what managers at your company can do.

You can set up manager permissions here: Manager Permissions

How it works

There are two parts to giving managers a permission: first is making them a manager in Justworks, and managing what permissions managers get. Currently manager permissions are granted to all of your managers.

Adding a manager

Managers are defined as employees that have direct reports. To make someone a manager, navigate to their direct report’s page and select them as manager under the "Job Information" section of the member’s page.


Enabling and disabling permissions

To add or remove a permission for managers, navigate to the Manager Permissions page. From there, you can click on the permission you would like to change, select whether it is enabled or disabled, and click save to update.


When a permission is enabled, it will trigger an email to all managers at your company letting them know what they can do in the system now. If a permission is disabled, no emails will be triggered.

Who can change manager permissions?

Only admins with the permission to “Edit employee permissions” will be able to view, enable, or disable manager permissions.
