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.
