What is a Pay Stub?
A pay stub is a document that has to be attached to the paycheck in order to specify details pertaining to the payment made. Usually this is a small piece of paper used for reference on tax deductions and when proof of income is required. The employer has to provide workers with this document to confirm their earnings for a specific time period.
Both the superior and employee have to keep pay stubs so that they could ensure legal work relationship and provide proof of income when required.
Nowadays most companies refuse using paper documents and turn to digital workflow. That’s why employers prefer to save their time and money by sending electronic forms for different types of documentation. The superior can easily complete a blank pay stub form and instantly file it to the worker via email, fax or even sms.
