Hi, the tax year is coming to an end, and I am trying to get my P45 from my ex employer. I was never given any payslips, even though I worked them for 6 months and asked every day for them. I am now gone, and I sent them a letter explaining that I was giving them until the 20th of March to send them to me, and they still haven't given me anything!
None of the other emplyees have had their payslips or P45 even though they have been asking as well.
What can I do? I am getting really worried that I will not be able to get my tax back
Thank you for your help
Hi there, employers are required by law to provide itemised payslips. If you have written asking them to provide them and they have not you may consider taking the matter further. Did you send your letter recorded delivery and do you have a copy? you will need it if you are to take further action.
The following information may be helpful:
Complaints about itemised pay statementsApplications may be made to an employment tribunal by:
employees, if their employers fail to provide itemised pay statements, for a decision on what particulars ought to have been included;
employers or employees, if a question arises on statements issued, as to what particulars ought to have been included in a pay statement or a standing statement of fixed deductions.
Note: An employment tribunal cannot deal with a question relating only to the accuracy of an amount stated in any particulars. Making an application to an employment tribunal
