Failure to Provide Accurate Wage Statements

Employers must provide employees with accurate wage statements. The wage statements must depict the following:

  1. gross wages earned
  2. total hours worked by the employee
  3. the number of piece-rate units earned and any applicable piece rate if the employee is paid on a piece-rate basis
  4. all deductions
  5. net wages earned
  6. the inclusive dates of the period for which the employee is paid
  7. the name of the employee and only the last four digits of his or her social security number or an employee identification number other than a social security number
  8. the name and address of the legal entity that is the employer, and
  9. all applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding number of hours worked at each hourly rate by the employee.

If the employer does not comply with these requirements, the employee can recover both actual damages and penalties.
