Payslips to provide greater clarity for variable hours workers

APRIL will see changes to the way employers issue payslips to ensure greater clarity for people whose pay fluctuates because they work variable hours.

The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement)(Amendment) Order 2018 will bring in a new rule that all payslips must state the number of hours an employee has worked if their pay varies in relation to time worked.

In other changes, all workers will have the right to a written pay statement. Previously only employees had the right to such information.
