Are you sure you know which payroll deductions are legal, and which are not?

In payroll you calculate the gross wages of an employee by meticulously following strict regulations on what must be or must not be counted as hours worked and taxable income.

You pay the employee their net paycheck only by the payment method that is permitted.  But what about in between?  When it comes to deducting from the employee’s gross wages to achieve the net income are you also adhering strictly to the rules?

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