  • Deductions from wages: Failure to pay declared bonus was unlawful deduction

    25 February 2005

    In Farrell Matthews & Weir v Hansen, the EAT holds that a non-contractual bonus that had been declared constituted wages under s.27(3) of the Employment Rights Act 1996. The employer's failure to pay it therefore amounted to an unlawful deduction from wages.
