h. Total daily or weekly straight-time earnings or wages due for hours worked during the workday or workweek, exclusive of premium overtime compensation;
i. Reserved;
j. Total additions to or deductions from wages paid each pay period including employee purchase orders or wage assignments. Also, in individual employee records, the dates, amounts, and nature of the items which make up the total additions and deductions;

(2) Records of retroactive payment of wages. Every employer who makes retroactive payment of wages or compensation under the supervision of the labor commissioner, the administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, or court order shall:
a. Record and preserve, as an entry on the pay records, the amount of the payment to each employee, the period covered by such payment, and the date of payment; and
b. Prepare a report of each payment on a receipt form provided by or authorized by the commissioner, and
1. Preserve a copy as part of the records,
2. Deliver a copy to the employee, and
3. File the original, as evidence of payment by the employer and receipt by the employee, with the commissioner within ten days after payment is made.

a. In weeks in which an employee adheres to this schedule, indicate by check mark, statement or other method that the hours were actually worked; and
