New payslip rules come into force

Written by:
New laws coming into force this week mean payslips will now include the number of hours employees have worked, making it simpler to check you’re being paid in full, and the correct amount.

Nearly 300,000 workers will also receive a payslip for the first time, including those on casual and zero-hours contracts.

The changes form part of a package of reforms – known as the ‘Good Work Plan’ – which the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said is the government’s largest upgrade to worker’s rights in a generation.

Under the reforms, up to 120,000 agency workers will also benefit from the scrapping of the ‘Swedish Derogation’ – an end to the legal loophole which enables some firms to pay agency workers less than permanent staff.

New agency workers will also receive a key facts page before signing up with an agency, which will provide clarity around their pay
