ILLEGAL DEDUCTIONS FROM WAGES

ILLEGAL DEDUCTIONS FROM WAGES                     

It is against the law for your employer to deduct money from your paycheck as a result of honest mistakes, because most employees depend on their wages to pay the monthly bills, and the employer is in a better position to bear the loss through insurance.

Employers cannot use self-help to take money from your paycheck. For example, if you are in a car accident while driving a company vehicle, your employer cannot deduct money from your paycheck to pay for the damage even if you were negligent.

Other common examples of illegal deductions from wages involve uniforms, or lost or broken tools, or cash register shortages that do not involve theft.
