Itemised pay statement (or “payslip”) will be required for all workers from April 2019
The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement) (Amendment) (No. 2) Order 2018 extends the right to receive an itemised pay statement (or “payslip”) to all workers, and not just ‘employees’.
This order was amended on the 25th April and supersedes the previous amendment as set out in our article in February.
This change to legislation is aimed at all workers who work varied hours and whose pay changes accordingly. Itemised payslips will increase transparency for both employers and workers alike.
This order is due to come into force on 6 April 2019
What Action Should Employers Take?
Before the Order comes into force, employers should;
- Ensure payroll processes are adjusted to collect the new information required; and
- Amend the format of their payslips to include this new information, where appropriate.
