Whether it’s your first payslip or if you’ve been working for years, it’s still important to know how your pay is worked out. Your payslip contains important information, including your payroll number, your tax code, and your gross and net pay. In this guide we’ll help you understand your payslip and explain how to make sure you’re being paid the right amount.
All employees are entitled to an individual, detailed written payslip – at or before the time they are paid.
Your written payslip doesn’t have to be on paper – it can be sent to you by email or accessed through a website.
The right to a payslip applies to casual staff as well as employees. It doesn’t apply to independent contractors or people working freelance.
