Do you receive paystubs with your paycheck?
California labor law requires employers to provide a paystub to each employee with their paycheck. The pay stub must include the following information:
- Name and address of the employer
- Employee’s name and social security number
- Dates included in the pay period
- Gross wages, net wages and all deductions
- Total hours worked in that pay period
- Total wages paid in that pay period
If the employer fails to provide paystubs or gives inaccurate paystubs, the employee may get $50 for the initial pay period in which a violation occurs and $100 for each violation in a subsequent pay period, up to a total penalty of $4,000.
