Am I entitled to a payslip?

All workers in Australia covered by the Fair Work Act 2009 have an entitlement to receive a payslip each time that they are paid (regardless of what Award or Agreement they are employed under). The payslip must be provided by the employer to the employee “within one working day of paying an amount” (FW Act s536 (1)). The payslip must be either in an electronic or hard copy (Fair Work Regulation s.(3.45)). Also, the Fair Work Regulations requires that the payslip that each worker must receive each time they are paid must include some specific information. s.(3.46 (1-6)).
