All employees receive payslips

What does this mean?

  • It is important to ensure that each employee receives a copy of their payslip before they are paid i.e. weekly, monthly, etc. 
  • The payslips can be printed using official payroll software or they can be generated on Excel for example.  What is crucial however is that the information on the payslip is in line with legislation and that the method of wage calculation is clear.

What do I do?

The Department of Labour has a very simple example of a payslip, available in the Template Portal.
