Guidance for employers on new payslip legislation

Source: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills | | 01/01/2019

New legislation comes into force from 6 April 2019 which requires all employers to provide an itemised payslip to all workers, i.e. not just to employees, and to show hours on payslips where the pay varies by the amount of time worked.

The government has now published guidance to help employers with the new rules on showing the hours on payslips, which includes several useful example case studies. The guidance is non-statutory and has no legal effect on the interpretation of the legislation, but it will assist employers to better understand it.

The new rules apply to payslips covering pay periods which begin on or after 6 April 2019.
