What to put on a payslip
1. The Fair Work Ombudsman is currently focused on ensuring employers comply with payroll governance measures including focusing specifically on pay slips.
2. To meet your obligations, you should ensure pay slips are given to an employee within 1 working day of pay day, even if an employee is on leave (either in electronic form or hard copy).
3. Amongst other things, a pay slip must include the employee’s name, employer’s name & ABN, pay period, date of payment, gross and net pay.
4. If the employee is paid an hourly rate, the pay slip must include the ordinary hourly rate, number of hours worked at that rate, the total dollar amount of pay at that rate, any loadings, allowances, bonuses, incentive-based payments, penalty rates or other paid entitlements that can be separated out from an employee’s ordinary hourly rate.
5. Details of superannuation contributions paid for the employee’s benefit, including the amount of contributions made (or intended to be made) during the pay period, the name and number of the superannuation fund the contributions were (or will be) made into.
6. Contact us if you require any clarification or advice.
