Must an employer still pay the wages of an employee who has expressly refused to perform any work?

Employees who refuse to work, for example by going on strike, are not entitled to payment for the time that they do not work. This can be calculated hourly or daily, according to the terms of the individual contract of employment. If employees choose to operate a "go-slow" instead of a strike, they are still breaching the terms of their contract of employment, and the employer may opt to withhold a sum proportionate to the work not being done.
