Unlawful Deductions Of Wages Claims Stoke

It is illegal for an employer to deduct any of their employees’ wages unless the deduction has first been agreed in writing with those employees. For example, when you begin a contract of employment, you will generally sign to agree that your employer can deduct costs such as national insurance, PAYE, student loan payments and pension contributions.


It is illegal for an employer to deduct any of their employees’ wages unless the deduction has first been agreed in writing with those employees. For example, when you begin a contract of employment, you will generally sign to agree that your employer can deduct costs such as national insurance, PAYE, student loan payments and pension contributions. If, however, they take money off your wages without your written agreement, this is considered to be unlawful. The legal basis of this is the Employment Rights Act 1996 Part II. Even if you owe money to the employer, they are still not allowed to take it from your wages without your consent. Employers are still allowed to recover money if there has been a prior overpayment of wages or expenses, but these are exceptions to the general rule that they are not allowed to make deductions from their employees’ wages.

If you feel that your employer has engaged in an unlawful deduction of wages, then the first thing you should do is to raise the issue with them. You should tell them when the incident took place and explain that you did not agree to the deduction in writing before it happened. If you are unsuccessful in re-claiming your money, you might then be able to progress your case to an Employment Tribunal.

Some examples of unlawful deductions of wages could be when an employee accidentally damages some company property and, instead of the employer notifying them that they are responsible for paying for the damage, they simply take it out of their wages instead. Another case that sometimes arises is when employees leave employment and fail to return equipment, such as laptops. If the employer then took the money for it out of the employee’s final wages without them first agreeing to it, this would be unlawful even though the employee technically owed them the money. Also, if an employer failed to pay an employee, this could also count as an unlawful deduction of wages in some circumstances. If, however, you were late for work and your employer paid you less as a result, this would be unlikely to be unlawful as most employment contracts include a contractual start time. If you are late for this, or have unauthorised time off work, your employer is not obliged to pay you for it, so this is something you should think about before deciding to bring an unlawful deduction of wages claim against them.

If you believe you have been the victim of unlawful deduction of wages please get in touch with us as soon as possible as there is a 3 month deadline to put in the claim for the money owed to you.

No Win No Fee

No Win No Fee arrangements (or Conditional Fee Arrangements; CFAs) ensure that if you do not win your accident claim, you do not have to pay your solicitor a fee. Insurance will cover you against the other side’s costs and expenses. If you win your no win no fee claim, you should receive your compensation free of any deductions, as your solicitor’s costs should be paid by the other side.
