Scottish Government warns employers over snow days pay docking


Mon, 05 Mar 2018

Scottish Ministers are considering action against employers for docking the wages of staff who could not make it to work because of the bad weather. The public was advised not to travel during the worst of the snow last week. Scottish Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said he had been contacted by people who were facing disciplinary action or potential docking of wages. He told the BBC that was not acceptable and he would look at the legal position.
