Urgent action required: New payroll legislation
From April 2019 onwards, the legislation around the detail of payments on a payslip is changing. It will become a legal requirement to detail hours/units worked, as well as the total amount paid.
It is optional as to whether this is broken down by type of work or rate paid although enhancements to Webroster will be catering for both.
The enhancements will mainly involve the link between the pay codes on the product, ratesheet and expense entry screens in setup and the payroll reports and exports available. It is a priority here at Webroster to ensure that all our customers are able to meet legislation but also that there is no disruption to staff payments.
We would appreciate if you could have a look at the questions below, if the answer to any of the questions is ‘yes’, could you please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday February 15th:
- Do you currently use the pay codes in Webroster for anything other than providing a breakdown of pay?
- Would updating the pay codes mean the data does not agree with your payroll system?
- Do you have any bespoke payroll reports that may be affected by the changes?
- Do you have any queries or concerns as to how this may affect you?
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you are not sure on any of the above or would like further guidance.
