What happens when a business happens to unfortunately come across a financial situation in which forces a landlord to stop supplies of fuel&gas and water supply, basically restricting the tenanted property from being operated due to late rental payment. Period lasted for 10 days. Financial difficulty resulted from a prolonged poor staff performance and an eventual though unexpected sharp drop in sales. 

Question: Is it allowable for the Employers to pro-rate both monthly and daily wages, and how such situation would effect the salary drawn for staff under probationary period. Would appreciate if you could provide a win win solution for both parties at hand as well as the rights of both parties if one of the other were to exercise their full rights.

If you want a win-win situation, the company will have to discuss the problems with the employees in order to reach some mutual agreement satisfactory to both parties. If the employees were to complain to the Labour Department, it may not be too good for the company, I think.
