Prior to the enactment of Government Regulation No. 78 of 2015 concerning Wages, the provision of salary slips to employees has not become a mandatory standard.
This is the reason why some companies do not give slips to their employees. But since 2015, the enactment of this regulation has made employers have an obligation to provide salary slips to their employees as proof of salary payment which is the right of their employees.
Salary slip, when viewed from the format, is a breakdown of income and deductions from salaries or wages of employees, so that employees know exactly how much wages should be received, how many deductions or additions come in, what are the deduction and addition variables, as well as some other details. In addition to being given as stipulated in the PP, slips are also a form of company transparency for its employees.
Examples of deduction and addition variables from own wages include sales commissions, reimbursement costs, incentives related to certain activities, absenteeism from employees regarding absenteeism, penalties or fines due to certain problems, benefits, income tax, insurance contributions, and so on. Each of these details is listed systematically and coherently on the salary slip given to the employee each month, along with the final amount received by the employee. There are at least three benefits for paying salary slips to your employees.
As Evidence Of A Legitimate Work Relationship
If you have a company that employs a number of employees, you can make this document a legitimate form of cooperative relationship. With the existence of a regular salary slip on behalf of every employee you employ, the company is administratively and legally employed.
Payslips can also be a clear basis for cooperation that occurs when there are unwanted problems in the future. When there may be individuals who claim their rights as employees, you can request relevant files that have been routinely given for basic evidence that the person is your employee. If he does not have the slip, then the cooperation status can be doubted.
Of course, this applies if you as an entrepreneur also perform the obligation to provide payslips correctly and on time. For both permanent and non-permanent employees, it is your duty to provide the salary slip. Isn’t a healthy company a company that is transparent and respects its employees?
Estimated Employee Financial Capabilities in Loans or Credit
Apart from being proof of cooperation, the provision of slips also allows your employees to make loans or credit to related institutions. Applying for credit and loans usually requires a paycheck, as a benchmark for your employees’ financial capabilities. Of course, by providing carefully detailed slip information, you can help employees get credit according to their abilities.
Relevant institutions that will provide credit or loans will usually ask for a copy of the salary slip in the last few months to assess the financial capabilities of your employees. This is important so that loans or loans do not exceed the capacity of these employees so that they do not become a burden in the future.
As a Basis for Correction & Monitoring on the Salary Given
In addition to the two benefits above, salary slips are given to employees also have other benefits, namely as a basis for correction and supervision of the delivery of wages by the company. The details recorded should ideally be real income and reductions that occur related to employee wages provided by the company.
If at one time there is a discrepancy of details with reality, then employees can make complaints at the company related to the discrepancy. This also became the supervisor of order and regular payment of salaries. Good relations between employees and the company can be established so that all can be done in a professional and open manner.
