Topic: A New Form of Wage Theft – Understanding How State Deduction Laws can Cost the Employer Money
A trending term with many state governments is “Wage Theft.” Perhaps you’ve seen many of the new “Wage Theft” laws, all of which work to ensure employers do not steal money from employees. But have you ever taken time to understand how state deduction laws may work to plunder money from employers’ coffers?
Mistakes in pay happen. When they do, would you know how to help your business recoup overpayments of wages? If you assume that wage deductions are always permissible to recover overpayments, you may be making a costly mistake. Failure to carefully comb through the myriad labor codes and Department of Labor positions on deductions of pay can lead to wage claims, DOL audits, penalties, and low employee morale. Add value to your business by ensuring you understand when, how, and what you may deduct from your employees’ wages.
