  • expand disabled

    Farrell Matthews & Weir v Hansen [2005] IRLR 160 EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In Farrell Matthews & Weir v Hansen, the EAT holds:

  • 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.
