Deductions on wages are governed by the Wages Protection Act 1983. No payments can be unlawfully deducted from wages.
It is the duty of the employer to make regular returns on PAYE on your behalf. Other deductions may apply including KiwiSaver, child support payments and student loan repayments. If you encounter a problem on payments of your tax, we can help investigate. We can help ensure you are being paid above minimum wage for hours worked and, according to the employment contract you are being paid at the correct rate.
If you have a problem with your employer making Unlawful Deductions from your wages, we can help you get your money back and also help resolve any dispute you have with matter that led to the deduction. We can also help you if your wages are underpaid or late paid outside statutory provisions. We can look at your holiday entitlements that should be reflected in your pay.
Where you have any concerns regarding your pay contact us to discuss. Sometimes a wage problem is the beginning of a bigger problem with your employer. We can act quickly on your behalf to keep things from escalating.
