For a multitude of reasons, I thought it prudent to ask my boss about payslips.
Thus far, I've been paid once, it would appear to be in full (perhaps about 70-100k less than I expected but more or less ok). When I got paid I asked for a breakdown of pay/tax/pension etc, expecting a receipt of these payments (a payslip, if you will). My boss proceeded to write some values on a piece of paper - not exactly what I had in mind but I left it.
Today I asked him for a proper payslip, saying a woman who I know from home who works at the tax office said I should collect an official, legal receipt of payment in case I need proof of earnings when I get home (which may be fairly soon, see my other thread). My boss's English is not very good, and I think something was lost in translation, so I told a Korean teacher what I wanted to say and the boss promised to speak to her after class. I didn't get a chance to speak to him before I came home, so I'm chasing it up tomorrow.
My question is, are payslips, ie legal proof of payment of wages, tax and pensions, the done thing over here? Is it more of a cash-in-hand and trust that the boss has paid all your obligatories, or should I expect proper documentation?
