Employee / workerEmployer

All state system employers are legally required to keep employment records. An employee can request to inspect his or her employment records by putting a formal written request to the employer. Employers must comply with this request and allow this to occur by the end of the next pay period after the employee makes the formal request. The Access to records page provides further information.

Many WA awards require employers to provide employees with a payslip which details their employment. It is not compulsory to provide a payslip to an employee if the relevant WA award does not require it or if the employee is award free. It is good business practice for employers to provide a payslip as this may help to avoid confusion and disputes if queries arise.

To find out payslip obligations visit the Payslip requirements page or contact Wageline.
