Accurate Wage Statements
When wages are paid, California employers must provide employees with an accurate, itemized wage statement, either as a paystub or a separate written document. California employers must ensure that wage statements comply with legal requirements or their employees may sue them.
CalChamber’s new white paper identifies nine categories of information that must be included on wage statements and offers practical suggestions for employers on minimizing their potential liability.
The white paper also discusses:
- Paid sick leave;
- Piece-rate employees; and
- Penalties for failing to comply with wage statement requirements.
What’s In Your Wage Statements? is now available for download. CalChamber members can download the white paper from HRCalifornia (log in required). CalChamber members can also use the new SmartStub, an interactive tool to help determine what information must be on your wage statements.
