There are four types of lawful deductions from wages under both federal and state law:
Those that are required by law, such as federal and state taxes, social security, workers’ compensation, or garnishment order.
Those for which the employee has signed a voluntary authorization; and the deduction is for the benefit of the employee, and is recorded in the employer’s books.
Those deductions for which the employee has voluntarily signed an authorization provided that the ultimate recipient of the money withheld is not the employer, and that such deduction is recorded in the employer’s books.
Those deductions authorized by a collective bargaining agreement to which the employer is a party.
Lead Counsel independently verifies attorneys by conferring with state bar associations and conducting annual reviews to confirm that an attorney practices in their advertised practice areas and possesses a valid bar license for the appropriate jurisdictions.
