With your first pay, you’ll also receive a payslip – a document outlining how many hours you’ve worked and most importantly, how much pay you’ll get. Understanding what’s in your payslip will help ensure you receive the correct pay and entitlements. Your pay slip should include the following information, at the very minimum:
- The pay period, date of payment and the gross (before tax) and net (after tax) payment amounts.
- Any loadings, allowances, bonuses, incentive-based payments, penalty rates or other paid entitlements that aren’t part of your usual ordinary hourly rate/salary.
- Superannuation contributions paid and the name and/or number of the superannuation fund the contributions were made to.
