Information Required on a Pay Stub
California law mandates that all employers provide their employees with an accurate and itemized pay stub, which is sometimes also referred to as a wage statement. A pay stub is required regardless of how the employee was paid, even if they are paid in cash, and it must provide the following information to the employee:
- Gross wages earned,
- Total hours worked, including overtime or double time hours,
- All deductions,
- Net wages earned,
- The pay period,
- The name of the employee,
- The last four digits of the employee’s Social Security number or employee identification number,
- The name and legal address of the employer, and
- All applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the number of hours worked at each rate by the employee.
Wages on a pay stub includes all compensation earned for work or services performed for the employer, including hourly wages, salaries, commissions, piece-rate payments, and any other type of payment that varies by task or project. Wages can also include the value of other benefits that an employee receives as part of their employment, including money, room, board, clothing, vacation pay, and sick pay.
Deductions can vary on a pay stub, but typically they include federal income tax, state and local taxes, Social Security and Medicare taxes, disability insurance, health insurance, retirement contributions, and any income withholding to pay creditors, spousal support, or child support.
Pay Stub Violations
If an employer fails to provide the required information in a pay stub or has incorrect information on the wage statement they are in violation of California labor laws. An employee can file a lawsuit against their employer for pay stub violations, which includes damages of penalties, attorneys’ fees, and court costs. Depending on the inaccuracies or missing pay stub information, an employee may also have a wage and hour claim against their employer for additional compensation. A knowledgeable California employment attorney like those at Venardi Zurada, LLP can review the details of your case and provide experienced legal advice on the matter.
