I'm a bit confused and hoping someone is in the know about the correct process when leaving a 0 hour contract.
I left my casual 0 hr contract job after three years of working there, it's been just over a month and I haven't received a P45. Should I even receive one given the contract type? Is it their duty to tell HMRC I'm no longer employed there? And should it have been sent/done by now, or am I being impatient?
Would I be unusual/wrong to email and ask for my P45 and to check they've notified HMRC?
They're very slow with admin, etc, and the secretary is terrifying so I don't want to be unreasonable. I'd just like everything done properly and in time for my new job, provided i get it!
Just ask them for your P45. It's hard for payroll depts when dealing with zero hours contracts as they may not know when you've left as "zero" weeks/months will be common. If no one has told the person doing the payroll that you've officially left, they won't know and your payroll will just continue being zero for eternity!
