Employers are required to provide pay stubs to employees on time, according to state and federal regulations. This means issuing pay stubs on or before the pay date and, in some states, providing employees with a reasonable time frame to review the pay stub before any funds are withdrawn. Failure to provide timely pay stubs can result in legal penalties and disputes.
While there are federal regulations that apply to pay stubs , many states also have specific requirements that employers must follow. These requirements can include additional information that must be included on pay stubs, such as sick leave balances or accrued vacation time. Employers should research and understand the specific requirements that apply to their state to ensure legal compliance.
