The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminds various private companies and employers to issue pay slips to their employees or workers to comply with the labor laws of the Philippines. It is the right of employees to receive their pay slips regardless of job designation, casual or regular employee, and wage. The payslips serve as a proof of their salaries if they are being paid correctly by their employers which include other details such as deduction of mandated social benefits and overtime or holiday pay. Employees to be issued payslips include domestic workers or commonly referred to as “Kasambahay”.
The Labor Laws Compliance Officers (LLCO) through their inspections ask employees to check the rates of deductions from their wages through their pay slips and whether social benefits such as the Social Security System (SSS) contributions were remitted.
Failure to comply with the said labor compliance will result in infringement of labor laws and employers may face charges. The DOLE highly encourages workers to report employers who are non-compliant.
