Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have you worked for your employer and is there anything in your contract that allows your employer to made such changes to your pay?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. If you did not go into work and did not follow any sickness absence procedure, the this would be considered as an unauthorised absence from work and you could indeed be docked a day’s pay for it. Had you advised them that you are not coming in to work and followed absence procedures, then they should have treated you as being off sick and paid you any sick pay you may be entitled to under contract. But if someone does not turn up to work and does not follow an absence reporting procedure can be treated as being unauthorised off work and have their pay docked.
Does this answer your query?
You can indeed ask them to amend it but at the same time banks, etc will understand why this has changed for one month only – if it was a frequent occurrence it will be more of a problem but if it is only once and there is a reason for it, they will understand
Hello, I see you have read my response to your query. Could you please let me know if it has answered your original question? You can simply reply on here with a quick ‘Yes, thanks’ and I won’t bother you again. Thank you
No worries and all the best
