    I'm working at this company for 14 years. I don't know how many annual leave, long service leave and sick leave I have because the employer hasn't been writing down these details in the pay slips. We have to ask all the time how many days of leave I have got. Is the employer doing legal or illegal things? What can I do in this situation?

    Hi Neli,

    While it is recommended to show leave balances it’s not a requirement. However, your employer must tell you your leave balance if you ask for it.

    Employers must put on their payslips:
    • employer’s and employee’s name
    • employer’s Australian Business Number (if applicable)
    • pay period
    • date of payment
    • gross and net pay
    • if the employee is paid an hourly rate:
      • the ordinary hourly rate
      • the number of hours worked at that rate
      • the total dollar amount of pay at that rate
    • any loadings, allowances, bonuses, incentive-based payments, penalty rates or other paid entitlements that can be separated out from an employee’s ordinary hourly rate
    • the pay rate that applied on the last day of employment
    • any deductions from the employee's pay
    • any superannuation contributions
