What are Paycheck Deductions and Reimbursements?
In some cases, an employer may be entitled to take a “deduction” from a worker’s paycheck in order to cover a certain cost. Effectively, an employer is recouping money from an employee. Alternatively, an individual worker may be entitled to receive a “reimbursement” for certain types of out-of-pocket expenses. With a reimbursement, an employer is getting money back from their company.
An Overview of Paycheck Deduction & Reimbursement Laws in California
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California Labor Code contain comprehensive wage and hour laws. These regulations are designed to help ensure that employees are paid properly for all time worked. Paycheck deductions and employee reimbursements can create some unusually complicated wage and hour cases. The California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) has put specific regulations in place regarding deductions and reimbursements. The following three types of deductions are expressly allowed under the law:
- Any deduction required by a state or federal statute;
- Any deduction authorized by a worker in writing, in order to cover benefits of a health plan, insurance plan, or other similar contribution; and
- Any deduction expressly authorized to cover health, insurance, or retirement benefits under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement.
