New Century Cleaning Co Ltd v Church [2000] IRLR 27 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Deductions from wages: Reduction in "work-bill" prices not an unauthorised deduction

    1 June 1999

    In New Century Cleaning Co Ltd v Church, a majority of the Court of Appeal holds that an employer's unilateral and across-the-board 10% reduction in the established prices offered to teams of employees for regular window-cleaning jobs did not amount to an unauthorised deduction from the wages "properly payable" by the employer to the employees.
