The new rules on itemised payslips come into force this April. The government has issued guidance to help employers comply with them. The guidance is a short, punchy document which is easy to read and contains a useful summary of the new requirements. Currently only employees have the statutory right to receive an itemised payslip. The new legislation requires employers to provide payslips to all workers.
Employers must also set out details of the hours worked where hours vary. The guidance gives examples of how to calculate different kinds of variable pay. It also has case studies showing when variations in pay will not need to be itemised, such as when salaried employees take unpaid leave.
