Morris v Secretary of State for Employment [1985] IRLR 297 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Deductions from wages: Claims for arrears of pay

    23 July 1985

    In Morris v Secretary of State for Employment, the EAT upholds the Secretary of State's decision to treat sums deducted from wages for tax and national insurance purposes as sums paid to the employee, so that the £152 a week maximum in claims for arrears of pay against the Redundancy Fund should be applied to the gross salary before making deductions for tax and national insurance.
