Right to Inspect Payroll Records for Employees in California
Employees in California have the right to inspect and copy their payroll records, as well.
Employers are required to provide California employees with certain payroll information when they receive their paychecks, either in the form of a separate document or a paycheck stub or voucher, including how many hours the employee worked, the rate of pay for each hour, deductions from pay, gross wages, and net wages.
Employers who fail to provide the required payroll information are subject to a $50 penalty for the first violation, and $100 for each subsequent violation, up to a maximum penalty of $4,000.
