    One offence must not carry a penalty or the law must not carry a penalty

    It's me again!

    One offence must not carry a penalty/fine that is higher than a one-day salary of an employee. In case of one offence, the law must not carry a penalty/fine that is higher than a one-day salary of an employee.

    Which version is more acceptable to you?

    Thank you.

    An offence cannot carry a penalty/fine amounting to more than one day's salary of the employee [who committed the offence].

    I would not change "one" to "an". Using "one" leaves open the possibility that a second or third offense could carry a stiffer penalty.

    "A single offence must not carry ..."
    "A first offense must not carry ..."

    Re: One offence must not carry a penalty or the law must not carry a penalty

    The whole article is about Health and Safety regulations.

    Rules for use of a schedule of penalties for disobeying to Health and Safety regulations
    Fines may only be imposed according to regulations of Chapter VI of the 4th Section of Labour Law.

    "... disobeying to Health and Safety ..." is incorrect. It should be "... penalties for disobeying/breaking Health and Safety regulations".

    Re: One offence must not carry a penalty or the law must not carry a penalty

    I am not a teacher.

    Is this about one offence or the first offence?

    If it doesn't mean the first offence, then "No offence may be punishable by a fine greater than one day's salary of the offending employee."
