Did you know that as an employer, you need to keep records of payslips for at least three years? In line with Sectoral Determination 13 (SD13), there are a few important aspects when it comes to the information concerning payment:

  • Every employee must receive the information regarding their payment.
  • The employer must give this payslip to employees during working hours at the place of work.
  • Payslips must be kept by the employer for 3 years.
  • Agri-workers must understand their payslips, and employers should make sure they are explained to all employees.
  • The payslip must contain all the information as set out in SD13.
