Unlawful Deductions From Wages

An employer cannot make deductions from the wages of its workers unless the deduction is authorised by statute or the worker’s contract, or if the worker has given their prior written consent to the deduction. If your employer withholds some or all of your wages without authorisation, you are entitled to make a claim to recover the money properly owed to you either to;

  • the Employment Tribunal
  • the County Court as a breach of contract claim

The deduction might be in relation to;

  • Salary
  • Commissions/bonuses
  • Sick pay
  • Holiday pay
  • Statutory maternity/paternity pay
  • Payment in respect of notice period

We can advise you on the best course of action to take, as well as try to resolve the matter without the need to issue court proceedings.
