Ridge v Her Majesty's Land Registry EAT/0098/14

Reports relating to this case:

  • Itemised pay statements: Recovery of an overpayment is a deduction

    9 August 2015

    In Ridge v Her Majesty's Land Registry EAT/0098/14, the EAT held that the recovery of an overpayment of wages made the previous month caused by unprocessed absence constituted a deduction for the purposes of s.8 of the Employment Rights Act 1996, and therefore had to be clearly set out and explained on the employee's payslip.

  • Payslips: deductions for overpayments should be itemised, says EAT

    1 October 2014

    The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that, where an employee's pay for a period is reduced to recover an overpayment for a previous period, that reduction represents a deduction that should be identified on the employee's payslip.
