I have recently heard a grievance regarding a claim of unfair deduction of salary. The background is an employee who recently claimed that he had been underpaid by 1 hour per week since 2000. He had changed his hours to par time at that time. There was nothing in writing to confirm his new hours of work. After some discussions the company agreed to pay an amount of money to him equivalent of the unpaid hours less an amount equivalent to a payment made to him during a period of sickness absence, which was over and above his contractual entitlement. He is now making the claim that the deduction made would be equivalent to an unlawful deduction from salary. Any thoughts would be appreciated. For information the employee is now retired.
