I think it should be something like this:

SELECT Employees.title, Employees.firstName, Employees.lastName, Addresses.Line1, 
Addresses.Line2, Addresses.Line3, Addresses.City, Addresses.Postcode
FROM   Employees INNER JOIN
                         Addresses ON Employees.addressId = Addresses.ID
WHERE  Employees.ID NOT IN (SELECT ExpenceForms.EmployeeID
                               FROM ExpenceForms)

You have both Employee.ID and EmployeeID.  Are they both present?

your exception has Employee while your query as EmployeeS. do you have a typo?

>> The multi-part identifier "Employee.ID" could not be bound.<<
That query doesn't seem to be producing that error. The error is caused because you are trying to use a column named ID from a table called (or aliased) "Employee" (without "s" at the end) . I don't see anywhere in the above query the "Employee.ID" expression.

Anyway, check your column and alias to ensure that they match with your current tables definition.

Also, another way of doing this query is
SELECT  Employees.title, 
	Employees.firstName, 
	Employees.lastName, 
	Addresses.Line1, 
	Addresses.Line2, 
	Addresses.Line3, 
	Addresses.City, 
	Addresses.Postcode
FROM    Employees 
INNER JOIN Addresses ON Employees.addressId = Addresses.ID
INNER JOIN ExpenceForms ON Employees.ID <> ExpenceForms.EmployeeID
