So, do you know how much you’re supposed to get paid for the work you completed?  How about your gross earnings?  Deductions? Your accrued sick time?  You should know the answer to all of these questions!

All Richmond employers must provide their employees with accurate wage statements! (Cal. Labor Code § 226.) Additionally, Richmond employers must provide their employees with a statement outlining how much accrued sick pay an employee has earned – this statement can be on the employee’s wage statement or another document. (Cal. Labor Code § 246.)

In Richmond, and throughout California, employers must include the following information on an employee’s wage statement. (Cal. Labor Code § 226.)

  1. gross wages earned

  2. total hours worked 

  3. the number of piece-rate units earned, if applicable 

  4. all deductions

  5. net wages earned

  6. the start and end date which represents the pay period

  7. the name of the employee and only the last four digits of his or her social security

  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.

As mentioned above, an employee must receive some sort of notice regarding their accrued sick leave.  If the employer fails to comply with ALL of these requirements, the employee can recover both actual damages and penalties.
