From April 2019 you will be required to
a) Provide payslips to all workers and not just employees.
b) Show additional information on a payslip for workers whose pay varies depending on the number of hours they have worked.
A payslip may be provided in either a physical format or an electronic format that the worker can print.
A worker who thinks that they have not received a payslip, or that the payslip they have received lacks the required information, may bring a claim before an Employment Tribunal. If the tribunal agrees, it must make a declaration to this effect, which it may publish on its website. The tribunal may also order repayment of un-notified deductions made in the 13 weeks preceding the presentation of the claim, even where the employer was otherwise entitled to make the deductions.
Whether you are a worker or employer, if you are unsure about any aspect of payslip requirements you can contact the ACAS Helpline on 0300 123 1100.
