New Payslip Changes

New payslip changes come into force from 6th April 2019.

Currently only employees ( i.e. somebody who works for you and who has a contract of employment ) must be given a payslip. From 6th April, ALL workers are entitled to a payslip. Workers include agency staff, bank staff, casual, and zero hours staff. An itemised payslip must be sent to them on or before every pay day.

The number of hours worked need be disclosed, to ensure compliance with the National Minimum Wage ( NMW ) rates. Failure to follow the NMW may result in financial penalties, being named and shamed, and being taken to Tribunal for unlawful deductions from their salary.

If you have not already done so, you should work with your HR and payroll departments to make sure that you are ready for the 6th April, and that you are fully compliant.
