What To Include on a Pay Stub

In California (Labor Code 226), failure to provide any one of these items can subject you to fines calculated on each pay period up to a total of $4,000.00 per employee – plus attorneys' fees and costs.
  • Gross wages earned;
  • Total hours worked by the employee (unless properly exempt from overtime);
  • The number of piece-rate units earned and any applicable piece rate if the employee is paid on a piece-rate basis;
  • All deductions (all deductions made on written agreement of the employee may be aggregated and shown as one item);
  • Net wages earned;
  • The inclusive dates of the period for which the employee is paid;
  • The name of the employee and the last four digits of the social security number or employee identification number – not the entire social security number;
  • The name and address of the legal entity that is the employer; and
  • All applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding number of hours worked at each hourly rate.
According to our friends at Fisher & Phillips:

California Labor Code 226 is not a recent statute, but employees have begun regularly including claims under this statute in many actions filed against employers...This is true low-hanging fruit on the litigation tree.
