This question has an answer and 4 steps

2. Check your pay stub

The law says that on or before your payday, your employer must give you a statement of your wages. This is often called a pay stub.

The pay stub must include:

  • your rate of pay, for example, how much you make in an hour
  • the pay period, for example, June 1 to June 14
  • your wages for that period, before and after any deductions
  • how your employer figured out your wages, for example, how many hours you worked and what they owe you for those hours
  • the amount and reason for any deductions

It's always a good idea to check your pay stub and make sure your employer is following the law and not making any illegal deductions.
