Under the Fair Work Act 2009, an employer must give each employee a pay slip within one day of being paid.
A pay slip may be given to an employee in hard copy form or in an electronic form, provided it is issued to them. It is not enough for an employer to simply generate the pay slips and store them on a database.
The Fair Work Ombudsman has issued best practice guidelines on electronic pay slips as follows:
Regardless of the format a pay slip must contain details of all payments, deductions, superannuation contributions, and the details of any payments made under the Government Paid Parental Leave scheme. Strict penalties apply for failing to comply with these requirements.
Specifically a pay slip must include the items listed in the Content of Pay Slips Checklist.
