compliance - Licensing+ app

We’re excited to announce three developments in Zenefits’ ongoing efforts to move forward and lead the industry in licensing compliance.

In a keynote address at Dreamforce this week, our CEO David Sacks showcased our new Salesforce app – called Licensing+ – which features best-in-class internal controls for insurance licensure. We previously wrote about these controls here. Our Licensing+ app was featured alongside other innovative apps from Teach for America and Eli Lilly.  You can watch the video here.  We’ve made Licensing+ available for free for any Salesforce user, and we’ve already had inquiries from a number of leading industry companies. For more details and a helpful video on the app, see our Licensing+ page here.

Today, we are also happy to report that we have reached regulatory settlements on licensing with three more states, WashingtonVirginia and Texas regarding licensing compliance issues that occurred under prior management. Like Tennessee and other states, the Washington Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC) took notice in its consent order of the extensive remediation steps taken by new management.  We want to thank Commissioner Kreidler and OIC for their leadership in recognizing the significant and extensive changes at Zenefits.

We have now reached resolution with 9 states. We look forward to continuing our productive and collaborative relationships with our regulators in Washington, Virginia, Texas and across the country. And all of us at Zenefits are excited to move forward with serving entrepreneurs and small businesses so that we can help them start, manage, and grow their small businesses.

Updated on October 14 to include settlement with Texas DOI.
