Can my employer reduce our wages due to Covid-19?

20th Mar 2020

Today we learned that our employers measures to prepare for the Covid-19 slump is that we are to take a 40% pay cut and we must still do the 40 hours/week. Is this legal?

    The employer is not able to reduce wages unless it says in the contract or is agreed otherwise. However, if an employer is not able to cover staff costs due to COVID-19, they may be able to access support to continue paying part of your wage, to avoid redundancies. Please contact Summerfield Browne Solicitors for further information should you require it 0800 567 7595.
