Payout on Desertion

Unread post by CJT5920 » 13 Sep 2017, 08:53

We have an employee that has not arrived for work. When asking, they said that the have started at a new job and will not be coming back. They have worked for us for part of the month. Are they entitled to their pay for days worked, and are we still entitled to deduct monies owed in terms of a loan agreement?

You must pay the employee for days worked and deduct the loan amount IF the employee consented thereto and the amount does not exceed 25% of the total monies paid.
