MOM and the tripartite partners have issued the Tripartite Guideline on the Issuance of Itemised Payslips. The guidelines will help create progressive workplaces.
Use these tools to help your company administer and issue itemised payslips:
| Company type
| Micro companies with very few employees, who wish to issue hardcopy payslips
|| Payslip template booklets
The payslip template booklet consists of the Tripartite Guidelines, a sample payslip to help employers better understand how to fill in the payslips, as well as tearable blank payslips that they can conveniently fill up and issue to their employees.
You can collect the free payslip template booklets at any of the SME Centres listed above, or at SNEF, TAFEP or MOM Services Centre. You can also download and print the booklets, available in four languages:
