What are my contractual rights?
Any contract you have with your employer, whether written or verbal, should make it clear what salary (or commission or bonuses) you’re entitled to receive and when you’ll receive them, plus any arrangements about paid over-time, sick pay, maternity pay and other benefits.
If your employer decides to cut your pay or change your pay date without consulting you, or you think you’ve been underpaid in some way, you may have a claim for unlawful deductions from wages, or breach of contract, or a right to claim constructive dismissal.
Your contract may also provide for other benefits for example – a company car or a car allowance; life assurance; paid overtime; private medical insurance; and a pension. As part of your contract, if your employer changes these terms without your consent, you may also have a claim.
