2. Hiring Employees

(1) Where an Employer fails to comply with any of Sections 2, 4 or 11, it shall be liable for a fine not exceeding level 7 on the standard fines scale in each case.
(2) Where an Employer fails to comply with Section 3 it shall be liable for a fine not exceeding level 8 on the standard fines scale.
(3) Where an Employer fails to give an Employee a written contract of employment as required by Section 5 (either because the Employer gives the Employee no written contract of employment or because the written contract of employment provided does not comply with what is required under Section 5),
(a) it shall be liable for a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard fines scale; and
(b) the Employee may apply to the Court for a declaration to determine what matters ought to have been included in the written contract of employment so as to comply with Section 5.
(4) Where an Employer fails to provide an Employee with a written itemised pay statement in accordance with Section 7 (either because the Employer gives the Employee no written itemised pay statement or because the written itemised pay statement provided does not comply with what is required under Section 7),
(a) it shall be liable for a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard fines scale; and
(b) the Employee may apply to the Court for a declaration to determine what matters ought to have been included in the written itemised pay statement so as to comply with Section 7 and/or whether any unnotified deductions have been made from the Employee's wages during the period of 13 weeks immediately prior to the date of the Employee's application to the Court (whether or not the deductions were made in breach of the contract of employment).
(5) Where the Court makes a declaration under Rule 2(4) and finds that any unnotified deductions have been made from the Employee's wages during the period of 13 weeks immediately prior to the date of the Employee's application to the Court (whether or not the deductions were made in breach of the contract of employment), the Court may order the Employer to pay to the Employee a sum not exceeding the aggregate of the unnotified deductions so made. For the purposes of this Rule a deduction is an unnotified deduction if it is made without the Employer including such deduction in a written itemised pay statement given to the Employee in accordance with Section 7.
