"Salaries paid late"

I started working for my employer in July. For this time frame I have been paid late twice. I informed my Manager - CEO & HR, that I will not be able to commute to work and back home if they do not ensure my salary is paid in the time frame indicated in our employment agreement - as I stay 45 km away form the office in another town.

They did not pay my salary on pay day and I did not have money for transport.

My salary was paid that afternoon and I returned to work that following day. This append again the next month and fortunately I was on training and I did not require access transport otherwise I would have not shown up to work gain.

Now 2 month after the incident I am handed a letter to indicate that they wish to deduct the money of the day I could not get to work from my salary.

Is this fair or can I dispute?
