Felthouse v Bindley ‘Conduct Argument”

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.
