Unlawful Deduction from Wages – out of time
The alleged ‘deduction’ from wages was in fact an alleged underpayment some time after the termination of the contract of employment. In finding that time for claiming in respect of such deduction ran from the date of termination, the Tribunal fell into error. Time would normally begin to run from such date where there had been a complete non-payment, but where the claim was for an underpayment, time runs from the date when the underpayment was made for it was to be treated as the sum form which the deduction was made. Decision of EAT in Group 4 Nightspeed Ltd v Gilbert  IRLR 398 clarified. Also there was a procedural issue on the application for a review.
