Wages Protection Act 1983

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

Legislation that sets out the way wages must be paid and protects employees from unlawful deductions.

According to the act, employers can only deduct from an employee’s wage under strict circumstances and they are not allowed to force an employee to pay them in exchange for a job. Employers are also not allowed to control how an employee spends their wage.

Any breach of the Wages Protection Act is liable for investigation from the Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court.
