FREELANCERS and GIG economy are now entitled to payslips.
The requirement, which extends to all workers, including casual and those on ‘zero-hour’ contracts, and not just employees, came into force on 6 April this year.
There are several key details that must be included on the payslip, such as:
- Gross pay and salary
- Varied rates of pay and hours worked
- The amount of any deductions and what they relate to
- Net wages or salary payable; and
- The amount and payment method
The more complex question is, however, determining whether someone is an employee, worker or self-employed contractor. G H W Rosevear & Co. are employment law specialists and are always pleased to assist in determining employment status.
