Do you know your obligations about payslips and record keeping?
There a number of obligations employers have in relation to records. These range from details about the employee’s status such as full time, part time or casual to the amount of leave they have taken.
As an employer you have obligations to ensure any existing systems are in keeping with workplace legislation in particular the Fair Work Act 2009 and the Fair Work Regulations 2009. Your business could be prosecuted for inadequate record keeping or failure to provide the correct details on a payslip even when you rely on payroll systems already in place.
The Fair Work Ombudsman has been cracking down on record keeping and a number of businesses have been prosecuted for not keeping adequate records.
