Q. What payroll records must my company keep under North Carolina law?

A. Employer payroll records should include the following information for each employee for each workweek:

  • Full name
  • Home address and phone number
  • Date of birth if under the age of 20
  • Occupation or job title
  • Time of day and day of the week that the employee’s workweek begins
  • Regular rate of pay
  • Hours worked each day
  • Total hours worked each week
  • Total straight time and overtime earnings each workweek
  • Total additions to or deductions from wages each pay period
  • Total gross wages paid each pay period
  • Date of each payment.

You must retain required payroll records for at least three years. Most third-party payroll companies maintain this information for their employer clients.
