When someone leaves a job, their final pay will often be different from their usual weekly or monthly pay.

Someone’s final pay might change because of things like:

  • how much holiday they've taken
  • money deducted for training courses
  • redundancy pay included in final pay

Employers should make sure the person leaving understands how their final pay was calculated. For example, it should be clear in the payslip what each payment or deduction is for.

If you do not get your final payslip

If you do not get a payslip for your final pay, you should speak to your employer.
