Pay Deductions Explained: What You Can And Can’t Legally Deduct From Employees’ Pay

Pay deductions are any amount of money withheld by an employer from an employee's earnings. They typically include income tax, health insurance, and social security contributions, but there are many other areas that may cause confusion for even the savviest HR manager.

FLSA permits employers to deduct the reasonable cost of some items, even if the employee's cash wage drops below the minimum wage - for example, federal and state taxes, meals and lodging, transportation the employer provides, instructional costs like tuition, and deductions that benefit the employee. Pay deductions for loans, equipment, jury duty, uniforms, and equipment damage can be a bit tricky and handling them wrong could land your organization in legal hot water. Consider this example:

Natalie Salon in California agreed to pay $750,000 to settle a class-action lawsuit alleging that it unlawfully made pay deductions for 125 nail technicians for things like dropping nail polish.

It's important for you to recognize when certain payroll deductions may be perfectly legal, and when others may not be under federal law so you can keep your organization in compliance.

Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:

  • Types of pay-based deductions that are generally permissible and those that are not under federal law
  • What to do if you receive a letter from the IRS or a court order to garnish wages
  • Practical tips for making payroll deductions pertaining to cash shortages, employer-owned property that is damaged or destroyed, jury duty, and more
  • Whether you can require exempt employees to use vacation or PTO when your office is closed and you can't legally dock their pay
  • When you could be in danger of losing an exemption for making salary deductions for an exempt employee
  • Payroll deduction policy drafting tips
  • How to develop a policy for making deductions to pay back debts to your organization, such as employees loans, advances, and purchases
  • What to do if an employee leaves the company before his debt is fully repaid
  • And much more!

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
