Survey on recording the number of hours worked on payslips

19 June 2017


The Low Pay Commission recommended in their Spring 2016 report that employers should include in their staff’s payslips the hours each worker is being paid for. The reasoning behind the recommendation is to increase transparency and information provided to workers about how their pay is calculated.


The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is exploring the best way to implement this recommendation and has asked the CIPP to survey our members in order to understand whether this proposal will bring additional financial and administrative burdens.


The survey will also aim to obtain a better estimate of the proposal’s business impacts and benefits.  The survey is aimed at employers, payroll agents and software developers and will close on 31 July 2017.


We were running this survey in April but had to close it early due to Purdah; BEIS has now asked that we re-open the survey.


We know how busy you all are, but we hope that you will manage to spare some time to complete this important survey, if you haven't already. Thank you.
