Should wage slips show holiday pay?

    I know that some of you will know more about this than me!
    My wage slip used to show how much holiday pay i had and used to add to it everytime i got paid (as did everyone elses i work with!)
    It has now stopped being showed on the wage slips and i was wondering if that is ok/allowed as i heard a whisper it isn't??
    I have searched for a while on the internet but can't really make head or tail out of it!!
    I hope i have explained well enough!


    When I used to get my pay slips, as far as I remember, it was just basic pay, tax, ni, any overtime and the £2 per month social club deduction. Holiday pay never got put on it as the 25 days were part of the job package, and my company were of the use them or lose them mentality, so there was never anything different on the payslips.

    AS far as I can recall, your pay slip should show your gross salary, your net salary (i.e. how much you actually got paid), and everything that caused your gross salary to drop to whatever your net salary is.

    Not mandatory...see checklist below:

    The information mandatory over a wage slip includes:

    • Employer’s name and ABN
    • Employee’s name
    • Employee’s enterprise agreement
    • Employment period
    • Amount paid to the employee
    • Date on which the payment is made
    • Amount with and without the deduction of tax
    • Amount deducted as tax
    • Amount deducted for superannuation of the employee, if any

    You can also add further information on your wage slip if you desire so, like the overtime you do, your bonus, the commissions and incentives that you have earned or information related to your pension. This added information on a wage slip is known as payslip extras and can be availed by asking the concerned firm. The payslips have to be duly stamped and signed by the employer otherwise it holds no legal value.

    my wage slips in every job ive had always showed my holiday pay separate from what I earned during the month. The company I work for now do not show my holiday pay on my wage slip.
    when I asked I was told the holiday pay is in with my wages. No idea if I have been payed correctly or not ?????

    The best way to resolve that is to find a thread from nearly seven years ago, and sign up an account so that you can post in it...

    There are any number of ways of printing out payslips, and there is no requirement to show additional information such as holiday pay. If you're unsure whether you've been paid the correct amount and cannot calculate it yourself your best bet would be to ask your manager or payroll department for help in clarifying it.

    Oh, look at that. It turns out dragging up an ancient thread and making a new account actually may have helped. Kinda makes my facetious opening sentence rather obsolete!

    I have 28 days a year ,and I always keep track of how many ive had, but my company doesn't and gives me 7-8 days to many .. that's there mistake.
