Contracts of employment: Employer was not entitled unilaterally to reduce contractual allowance
Source: Industrial Relations Law Bulletin Date:
In MacDonald v The Lord Advocate, the Outer House of the Court of Session holds that an employer had no power unilaterally to reduce the rate of an overnight subsistence allowance paid to an employee as part of his contract of employment, where the terms of that contract were the result of a joint agreement between the employer and representatives of various trade unions.
