Felthouse v Bindley ‘Conduct Argument”
Madam Chairman, with regards to the Pename case cited by my learned friend opposite I would like to point out that; the notary public of London is not in favour.
In respect to deduction from wages, this does not enable an employer to make a deduction based on the conduct of the worker.
This is highlighted in Section 13 (5) where it states that:
For the purposes of this section a relevant provision of a worker’s contract having effect by virtue of a variation of the contract does not operate to authorize the making of a deduction on account of any conduct of the worker, or any other event occurring, before the variation took effect.
And under Subsection 6; it concludes the same principle of law but; For the purposes of an agreement or consent signified by a worker.
Thus, A deduction cannot be made based on conduct, Irrespective of whether worker has consented to such deductions.
Additional (full subsection 6 )
For the purposes of this section an agreement or consent signified by a worker does not operate to authorize the making of a deduction on account of any conduct of the worker, or any other event occurring, before the agreement or consent was signified.
