Thank you very much for clarifying. First of all, I am sorry to hear about the issues you have experienced in your situation.
The law on payslips is governed by the Employment Rights Act 1996. You can refer to the specific section here:
As you can see, there is no requirement for the hourly rate to be included on the payslips.
In terms of the payslips being issued to you, the requirement is for the employer to ‘give’ them to you at, or before, you are paid. There are various methods for this to happen – it could be a physical payslip that is handed to you, it could be an email with it attached or it could be an online portal where you access it to view, download or print it. In any event, they must give it to you, in a sense that you are able to access it.
