Employees must receive a payslip from their employer detailing the amount of pay they've received, and any deductions taken.

Payslips come in all different forms, whether they’re sent through the post in an envelope, password protected and sent to your inbox or accessed via a secure digital portal. Regardless of how employees receive their payslips, some may want more detail around what the elements of pay mean.

The CIPP has a new interactive ‘understanding your payslip’ tool, which cuts the jargon that can baffle people looking at their payslips. Please find it here: https://www.cipp.org.uk/resources/payslip-tool.html

This is a publicly available tool, so please spread the word far and wide to enable employees to fully understand their payslips.
