It is now compulsory for all employers in state industrial relations system to provide their employees with pay slips containing specific information.
The new pay slip requirements commenced on 20 June 2022, along with expanded employment record keeping obligations for employers.
Employers now face significant penalties for not providing a pay slip, or providing a pay slip that is false or misleading.
Industrial inspectors can also issue a civil infringement notice similar to an ‘on-the-spot fine’ if they believe that an employer has failed to comply with the new requirements.
The New pay slip requirements fact sheet details the changes, and the current employer obligations are outlined on the Pay slip information page
