Legislation requiring payslips to state number of hours being paid for time-paid workers laid before Parliament
The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement) (Amendment) Order 2018, which requires payslips to state the number of hours being paid for time-paid workers, was laid before Parliament yesterday.
The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement) (Amendment) Order 2018 was laid before Parliament yesterday.
The Order requires payslips for time-paid workers to state the number of hours being paid, either as an aggregate number of hours or as a separate figure for different types of work (or rate of pay).
The Order will come into force on 6 April 2019.
This legislation follows the Government’s response to the Taylor Review, published on 7 February 2018, and is the first of a number of changes the Government has committed to making to clarify employment rights.
Hannah Ball comments:
“It is important that employers of time-paid workers ensure that their pay slips are correct and that from 6 April 2019 payslips for time-paid workers state the number of hours being paid (if they do not already). This legislation is also the first of a number of changes the Government has committed to making in response to the Taylor Review. We will need to wait and see what other new legislation will be proposed.”
