Hi there I can help with this
This should hopefully be a relatively straight forward matter. You are legally entitled to payslips under the Employment Rights Act 1996. Since they are still refusing to give you payslips what you need to do write an official written grievance to Human Resources stating that you have requested the payslips and they are not being given. Inform them that under Section 8 (1) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 an employee has the right to be given by his employer, at or before the time at which any payment of wages or salary is made to him, a written itemised pay statement. You should also tell them that if they do not provide you with you wage slips then you will enforce your right to take them to an employment Tribunal. If they still do not answer you must go to Acas and go through early conciliation before you can raise a claim with an employment tribunal. I would hope that it will not go this far.
Just so that I am advising you on all possible outcomes. In the extreme circumstance you are dismissed for attempting to get you wage slips then you should seek legal assistance as you can then take them to a tribunal for automatic unfair dismissal for this (you can still bring this claim to a tribunal even if you do not have 2 years employment service).
I don't see that it will come to this and would hope that they will just provide you with the slips, however, I felt it would be best to give you this advice either way. I hope this has been helpful.
