We are happy to inform you that the regulations granting employers the right to serve employees with electronic pay slips have been promulgated. Employers are now able to issue electronic pay slips to employees via the employer’s secure website or via the employee’s email inbox, whether via his personal email address or his company email address. This option will be subject to the employee’s consent, which is to be given using a designated form that is specified in the regulations. The employee will have the right to withdraw his consent at any time. Furthermore, employers must enable their employees to access their electronic pay slips and to print them, in the manner specified in the regulations.
Employers preferring to issue pay slips via electronic means, rather than by issuing printed copies of pay slips, should familiarize themselves with the new regulations, obtain their employees’ consent, and institute all information-security measures specified in the regulations.
