Final pay when employment ends

Final pay given to an employee can be different from their regular pay.

Final Payslips

An employee should be given their final payslip. This should include all deductions that the employer has to make to the employees pay.

If an employee does not receive their final payslip, they should contact their employer and request that it be sent to them.

This is sometimes because:

  • They may have additional holiday payment included
  • They may need to pay back money (for training courses etc)
  • They may have redundancy pay included in their final pay

Employers should ensure that an employee leaving their employment understands how their final pay is calculated.
