Minimum information requirements on employee pay slips

Employers are obligated to issue pay slips to their employees in a timely manner with the required information regarding their pay.

Pay slips must be given to employees within 1 working day of their pay day, even if the employees are on leave.

Pay slips must be issued in an electronic format or hard copy. Electronic pay slips should be in an easy to print format and contain the same information as hard copy pay slips.

The details of an employee's pay covered in their pay slips include:

  • Employer's and employee's name
  • Employer's Australian Business Number
  • Pay period
  • Date of payment
  • Gross and net pay
  • The hourly rate and number of hours worked
  • Any loadings; allowances, bonuses, incentive-based payments, penalty rates or other paid entitlements
  • Any deductions from the employee's pay
  • Any superannuation contributions paid for the employee's benefit.
Though not required, it is recommended that the balances of the employees' leave be shown on their pay slips.

A pay slip template can be accessed from the Fair Work website.
