He's contacted HR who sent out a letter but it was not sufficient - it stated his full-time salary but mentions he was part-time. It did not reference any overtime.
Per Appendix FM-SE, the only requirements for the employer letter are that it confirms:
(i) the person’s employment and gross annual salary;
(ii) the length of their employment;
(iii) the period over which they have been or were paid the level of salary relied upon in the application; and
(iv) the type of employment (permanent, fixed-term contract or agency).
From this, it seems to me that any mention of overtime falls into the "nice to have" category and any refusals resulting from this not being included in an employer letter would have solid ground for an appeal (my opinion only of course). You have the pay slips as evidence and can outline the details and amounts of the overtime in a cover letter, doesn't sound like you're likely to get much more than that without a drawn out fight with the employer. In this case, if the employment contract provides any details with regards to overtime, it may be worth including that as well.
