Book your free initial call

    We endeavour to make an initial response to all enquiries within 24 hours but please be aware that on some occasions due to prior commitments or volume of calls we will not be able to respond in that time frame. We also operate a 48 hour return policy. This return policy means that if we have not responded with 48 hours of your initial enquiry we are unable to do so due to current workloads and we will destroy your data accordingly. This policy ensures you are not left waiting and have the certainty that your data is not compromised. In most instances however we are able to make contact within a 24 hour time frame. Please note our free initial advice service is available to clients at our total discretion and if your case is of a complex nature we may not be able to offer you a free consultation. However in these instances we will advise you what the charge would be for an initial fixed fee consultation.

The new rules on itemised payslips come into force this April. The government has issued guidance to help employers comply with them. The guidance is a short, punchy document which is easy to read and contains a useful summary of the new requirements. Currently only employees have the statutory right to receive an itemised payslip. The new legislation requires employers to provide payslips to all workers.

Employers must also set out details of the hours worked where hours vary. The guidance gives examples of how to calculate different kinds of variable pay. It also has case studies showing when variations in pay will not need to be itemised, such as when salaried employees take unpaid leave.
