Two Orders come into force on 6 April requiring payslips to state the total number of hours worked where pay varies according the hours worked and requiring payslips to be given to ‘workers’ and not just employees. The first Order requires a payslip to also contain information regarding the number of hours worked by the individual for which they are being paid, but only where pay varies as a consequence of the time worked e.g. a zero hours contract. The second Order confers a right to an itemised pay statement to all ‘workers’ – currently, employers are only required to provide an itemised pay statement to ‘employees’ employed under a contract of employment.
