A new order has come into force to provide all workers with the right to an itemised pay statement and to enforce that right at an employment tribunal.

The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Itemised Pay Statement) (Amendment) (No.2) Order 2018 came into force on 6 April 2019 and will apply to wages or salary paid in respect of any period of work after that date. It follows a recommendation of the Low Pay Commission that employers should state the hours being paid for on the payslips of all workers paid by the hour.
