Unlawful Deductions

Every employee deserves to be paid correctly and as promised by their employer. From time to time, disputes can arise and your employer may feel they have the right to deduct wages from you. However, employers can make mistakes and it may be that the deduction from your wages is actually an unlawful deduction.

There are many reasons why an employer might make a deduction from your wages. For example, to cover training expenses, uniform costs, property damage or sickness. But, if these deductions have not been formally agreed with you in advance, they could be unlawful.

If you believe your wages have been unlawfully deducted, the first step is to try and resolve the dispute with your employer. If you have tried this approach without success, we can help.
