Reminder! Additional information to be included on your worker’s payslips

Reminder! Additional information to be included on your worker’s payslips

New legislation means that from 6 April 2019 employers are to provide payslips to all workers. Currently, the right to receive an itemised payslip only applies to employees.

Employers are to also include additional information on a payslip for workers whose pay varies depending on the number of hours they have worked. Where this applies, the number of hours paid on this basis must be shown. Any other hours do not need to be shown however, to avoid confusion it would probably be best to do so. So for example, where a worker has a fixed salary each month, and works variable overtime with additional pay at an hourly rate, only the hours of overtime need to be shown. The hours can be shown either as a single total of all such hours in the pay period, or they can be broken down into separate figures for different types of work or different rates of pay. It should be clear which pay period they were worked in. They only need to be shown for pay periods which begin on or after 6 April 2019.

A payslip may be provided in either a physical format or an electronic format that the worker can print.
