Paycheck Stub Review
Pay stubs, also called “wage statements,” are a common target of wage and hour lawsuits. If they are deficient, the proof is directly on the face of the documents. Using pay stubs, the plaintiffs suing in a class or representative action could subject your company to steep penalties.
Pay Stub Requirements
Under Section 226.2, nine items must be on every pay stub:
Gross Wages Earned During the Pay Period
Total Hours Worked During the Pay Period
Number of Piece-Rate Units Earned and Piece-Rates, If Any
All Deductions from Wages
Net Wages Earned During the Pay Period
Inclusive Dates of the Pay Period (Start and End Dates)
Employee’s Name and Last Four of SSN, or Employment ID Number
Full Name and Address of Legal Entity of Employer
All Applicable Hourly Rates During the Pay Period and Amounts Paid at Each Hourly Rate
