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 an employee chooses to operate a "go-slow" instead of a strike he or she is still breaching the terms of his or her contract of employment, and the employer may opt to withhold a sum proportionate to the work not being done.
