Unfair deductions from wages
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. BRR Law has a dedicated Employment Law Department based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and our specialist lawyers are experienced in dealing with all aspects of unlawful deductions.
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 haven’t been formally agreed with you in advance, they could be unlawful.
