Employers must have procedures in place to ensure that written authority is received from a worker before any non-statutory deductions are taken from pay.
Deductions should not be made if written authority has not been given (unless the deduction is an excepted deduction in respect of which deduction is permitted by law).
Deductions should be shown on the payslip, either separately or in aggregate for fixed deductions where a standing statement of fixed deductions has been provided.
All employers should have procedures in place that should be followed in the event of a worker being overpaid.
Consider writing any likely circumstances requiring deduction of wages into workers’ contracts.
