Deduction of Wages

Deduction of Wages

Under the Employment Rights Act 1996 it is unlawful for an employer to make any deduction from the wages of a worker employed by him unless the worker has agreed in writing to the deduction being made or it is required by law (for example deductions for PAYE and national insurance).

If an employer reduces or fails to pay wages without agreement in writing this amounts to an unlawful deduction from wages even if the employee owes money to the employer
