    Q: What deductions can be made from an employee's wages?

    A: Section 193 of the Labor Law states:

    1. No employer shall make any deduction from the wages of an employee, except deductions which:

    a. are made in accordance with the provisions of any law or any rule or regulation issued by any governmental agency; or b. are expressly authorized in writing by the employee and are for the benefit of the employee (such as payments for insurance premiums, pension or health and welfare benefits, contributions to charitable organizations, payments for United States bonds, payments for dues or assessments to a labor organization).

    Employers may not deduct from wages the cost of breakage or spoilage of materials; nor may employers make wage deductions in any indirect manner, such as requiring a worker to pay for shortages by means of a separate transaction.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
