RS 01403.060 Employee's Own Record of Wages
1. List of Sources
Sources include complete:
other personal records.
2. Probative Value
The probative value of these records is weak because such records serve the individual's own interest, but regular, complete, and genuine records may corroborate other secondary evidence.
Obtain a signed (and dated) statement from employee (or his/her representative/survivor) showing:
who made the entries on the record;
whether entries were made currently;
the basis of the entries;
whether any statements, pay-envelopes, etc., were furnished by the employer, and, if so, what became of them; and
reconciliation of all discrepancies and explanation of all inaccuracies to the extent possible.
2. Examination and Clarification of Evidence
Check all computations in the record;
Note if wages received from another employer and properly reported are included in the record;
Document the above in the file.
3. Migrant Farm Workers
Follow instructions in RS 01403.077 to develop evidence of wages for migrant farm workers.
