I am employed by a small startup of around 10 employees that is funded on a monthly basis by investors.
I work full time and taxes are calculated as PAYE.
My work contract states that I will be paid on the last working day of each month, however for the last 3 months all employees have been paid 6-10 days late.
The business owner has stated that late payments have been due to fraud checks on the large money transfers from investors into the company.
When salaries are paid late, we do not receive a payslip until the money hits our bank accounts. This means that our payslips also arrive late.
My question specifically, is can the employer withhold my payslip until my salary is paid, or is there a legal requirement for the employer to send me the payslip earlier ?
