We have two secondees on a EU project and they are not doing the work they are expected to perform. They have standard fixed term Employment Contracts with us as well as a Secondment Agreement. They have been here two months but we are not satisfied with their performance. They seem to have done very little work and are not taking any notice of the project manager. We need to get them to cooperate but without destroying the project.
Their employer who have seconded them to us for the length of the six and four month secondments is visiting on Thursday and Friday but the secondees are due to receive their salaries on Friday.
I will be discussing the situation with their employer and the secondees but I just need to know if withholding their wages until they hit their deadline is legal.
