Pay slip templates available

The Fair Work Ombudsman has a variety of templates available that identify information that must be included on a pay slip by law. They also feature best practice additional information that is desirable to include.

Employers must issue pay slips to each employee within 1 working day of their pay day. It's best practice for these to be written in plain and simple English. The pay slip must be issued in electronic form or hard copy.

Employers must ensure that a pay slip is issued to an employee, even when they are on leave.

The Fair Work Ombudsman also has a range of templates for employing staff, managing leave and hours of work, and managing and ending employment.
