If you have not been paid by your employer, the best thing you can do is speak with your employer. If you're experiencing trouble with your pay, try talking to your employer casually. You could also contact your company's human resources or payroll department if one exists.
You should ask them to explain anything on your payslip that you don't understand or why you haven't been paid. Explain why you disagree with something. If your employer has made a real error, request that they pay you the money you are owed as soon as possible.
However, if you are unable to resolve the issue with your employer, see if your company has a formal grievance procedure. Even if they haven't, you can still file a complaint, such as in the form of a letter. Explain why you believe you have not been fairly compensated and send copies of any supporting documentation.
Lastly, if your grievance isn't resolved, you have the option of taking your employer to an employment tribunal but you will need to first notify Acas.
The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) aims to improve organisations and working life through better employment relations, working with employers and employees to solve problems and improve performance.
When you tell them about making a claim, they will offer you early conciliation. This is when they talk to both you and the respondent about your dispute. It gives you the chance to come to an agreement without having to go to a tribunal.

Is there anything else I can help with today?
Yes, your employer should not delay any payments. You should check if your employer has a grievance procedure that you can follow. If they haven't, you can still file a complaint, such as in the form of a letter and explain why you believe you have not been fairly compensated, and send copies of any supporting documentation.
