Payslips to become digital-only with move to myHR portal

It was agreed some time ago that the University would cease to print paper payslips, and offer only electronic payslips, to those staff who have access to the myHR portal . We can now confirm that paper payslips will cease to be printed for the majority of staff after February 2017.

In order to cut the cost of printing thousands of payslips each month, most academic and support staff will not receive a paper payslip after February 2017 (i.e. the February payroll will be the last one to be accompanied by a paper payslip).

We realise that there are some groups of staff who do not have easy access to the myHR portal and so we will, for the time being, continue to provide paper payslips to the following staff:


Casual staff

Domestic and catering staff

External Examiners

For technical reasons, staff with multiple employments with the University, will also continue to receive a paper payslip for the time being.

In order to prepare staff and assist with any concerns they may have, we have developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions. These are available on the University website at or a hard copy can be provided by the Payroll Team by telephoning Ext. 2948 or emailing .

If you have any other questions regarding this announcement, then please do not hesitate to contact the Payroll Team.
