    Is the deduction of uniform expenses in the name of employer's expenses legal?

    We have uniform codes in our office. Ours is a private organisation. When appointed we all were asked to be in office uniform daily which will be on employer’s expenses. But at the time of salary, deductions were made in the name of employer’s expenses. Is this legal?

    Hi

    yes the uniform is allotted by a employer's.

    in any field or any company it will be same.

    so firstly when they told you that they were paid for your uniforms so

    its not your expences.

    try to talk with your collegues and go for a manegment.

    it will helps you out.

    Hi,


    You can see your offer letter and look for company policies and rules regarding this . If the rule is like company has to pay the expense then you claim from the company . Else its not possible because the compnay will tell like some miscommunication might happened . So check with your seniors regarding this and proceed


    Medical benefits , loan option , PF deductions are also offered for the employees .

    Be aware of these details too as its necessary to be known


    Thanks !!!!

    Dear friend,

    You have to check this issue with your offer letter and HR policies of company, if in offer letter it is mentioned that the uniform expense is been beard by employer itself then you can drop an email or consult your seniors for the same. Even you can take legal actions too, but that is not advisable, so better consult this issue with your senior level management.
    I believe they will surely check into the matter and will do the needful.

    All the best.

    Dear Friend

    There is uniform in every company so every employee is required to have the same..

    When you were told before that there will be charge for the uniform and after the dress order they are asking fro money this is ridiculous and you should talk with your colleagues and after that reach on a decision then go to the company management to talk about this problem.

    And not to have a loss for something you are getting free..

    ALL THE EBST

    Dear Aspirant,

    The facilities to the employee varies from company to company.Some company/organisation provides uniform to its emplotees free of cost,where as some may deduct the charges from the salary of the employees.It is the company policy & you can not say it as illegal.

    In order to work in the organisation,you are to follow its policy.If you are not happy,you can try for still better company.

    Thanks.
