As an employee you have the right, each time you are paid, to receive a written statement which specifies your gross amount of wages or salary, the amounts of any fixed or variable deductions and the net amount of wages or salary payable. A pay slip or pay envelope with this information would suffice. If different portions of the net amount are paid in different ways e.g. part in cash and the balance to a bank account, then the amount and method of payment of each part-payment must be specified.
The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.
The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.
While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
