Paycheck definition

A paycheck contains the net amount of salary or wages paid to an employee. A pay stub is normally attached to a paycheck, detailing an employee’s gross pay, itemized deductions, and net pay. Paychecks may be replaced by electronic payments, such as direct deposit, that send the pay amount directly into an employee’s bank account.
