  • Wage deductions

    Hello all,

    Recently I was medically suspended from my duties and my company arranged other work for me. However, the company adjusted my wages down in line with the wages earned by the people performing that role. I believe this is in breach of the Employee Rights Act 1996 section 64. My wages were therefore being deducted by approximately £200p/w. I've raised grievance regarding section 64 but am looking for advice on Section 13. In the minutes of the second meeting i attended the spoke of the reduction in wages and I have signed those minutes as accurate. In your opinion does signing minutes as accurate count as 'prior written permission' under section 13 of the ERA 1996? In my opinion, that signature is only confirmation of something verbal, and does not fulfill their requirement of 'prior written permission' but I'm looking for clarification. Do minutes count as written permission if signed or are they simply confirmation f a verbal communication.

    Thanks in advance.

      Fingers crossed it will get sorted but a gentle chase to see what is happening would not be amiss.

      Come back and let us know what happens.
