STRIKE PAY: All in a day's work

14 July 2017  

Phil Allen and Louise Singh look at the implications of a recent Supreme Court decision on how much pay to deduct when employees go on strike for a day

If employees are on strike, an employer does not have to pay them for the periods when they are not working. In the recent case of Hartley v King Edward VI College [2017], the Supreme Court considered how much pay an employer was entitled to deduct when tutors at a sixth form college took part in a day of lawful strike action.
