Every worker to have right to itemised pay statement from April 2019
The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement) (Amendment) (No.2) Order has been made.
It will amend the Employment Rights Act 1996 with effect from 6 April 2019 so that every worker will have the right to be given a written itemised pay statement at or before the time at which any payment of wages or salary is made to him or her.
Where an employer either fails to give a worker a statement or gives a worker a statement that does not comply with what is required, the worker will be entitled to make a reference to an employment tribunal to determine what particulars ought to have been included or referred to in a statement. The worker will also be able to refer the question of whether all the particulars which should be included or referred to in the statement have actually been included to an employment tribunal.
