Illegal Deductions from Wages

Employers may only deduct certain, specified, amounts, such as taxes or insurance, from wages. The employee must agree to these deductions in writing. An employer cannot make unauthorized deductions from wages. Unlawful deductions could include deductions for damage to equipment, uniforms, or other costs of doing business.

If your employer took deductions from your wages without authorization, we welcome you to contact the Workman Law Firm for a free consultation.
