I worked with Meridian for a few months between jobs. I have never received a paycheck. I am lead to believe they are available online. How do I access these payslips? Is it legal to with-hold wage slips from employees?
We're sorry that you have found it difficult to access your payslip and we thank you for the feedback and the opportunity to improve our process. Meridian Business Support is committed to reducing its affect on the environment through a number of initiatives including the reduction of unnecessary printing.

In terms of payslip rights, the online government payslip page states:
People who work don’t have the right to a payslip if they’re:
- not an employee, eg contractors, freelancers or ‘workers’ - read about the different types of employment status
- in the police service
- a merchant seaman, master or crew member working in share fishing (paid by a share in the profits or gross earnings of a fishing vessel)
