    SIP (Industrial Products) Ltd v Swinn [1994] IRLR 323 EAT (0 other reports)

An industrial tribunal had no jurisdiction to determine the legality of a deduction from wages made for the purpose of reimbursing the employer for an overpayment of expenses, holds the EAT in SIP (Industrial Products) Ltd v Swinn. It made no difference that the overpayment in question resulted from fraudulent expenses claims submitted by the worker.
