Summary: The company we left behind last week was a repeat violator of employment laws; to make matters worse, it led to its long-term or long(time)-serving staff becoming very baffled, having to contact the pension provider for clarifications

THE latest part in the Sirius ‘Open Source’ series (expected to last this whole month based on a tentative estimate) deals with several pension blunders, further exacerbated by a lack of payslips and a lack of response from management (enquiries originally ignored).

Should it take more than a week with repeated nags/reminders to simply receive an explanation for gaps in pension contributions? What if this happens for several consecutive months and repeats itself several years apart? Is this an accident or a company falling apart, or at best failing to juggle basic responsibilities?

The company I left last Friday probably won’t last much longer so it is important to talk about some of the warning signs. Running afoul of employment regulations, repeatedly even, is a wake-up call; it’s time to move on.

Your employer must provide you with a payslip. They do not have to do this if you’re: not an employee or ‘worker’, for example a contractor or freelancer; in the police service; a merchant seaman; a master or crew member working in share fishing (paid by a share in the profits or gross earnings of a fishing vessel); Your payslips can be used as proof of your earnings, tax paid and any pension contributions. Employers can choose whether they provide printed or electronic (online) payslips. Payslips must be provided on or before payday.

Sirius repeatedly broke these rules and was casually confronted about it. For the last 6 months or so that I was at the company it was a perpetual breach.
