Before the deduction can take place, you must receive, 30 days prior to receipt, a written notice from the Confederation or the State authority informing you of the nature of the student loan obligation and the Agency`s intention to recover the debts through wage deductions. At this point, you can avoid withholding by entering into a written agreement setting out a payment plan for the repayment of the loan. 1. Is it legal for my employer to deduct my salary? An employer has the right to deduct certain items from an employee`s salary if the worker has voluntarily authorized the deduction in writing. For example, these deductible items are union dues, charitable contributions or insurance premiums. These deductions are also allowed when the amount of the deduction is less than the minimum wage. In all cases, there must be a written record in the employee`s payslip file that the employee consented to the deduction. Since many federal statutes cover the different types of deductions that can be made from your paycheck, it depends on what legislation it is. If a non-profit contribution has been selected without authorization, you can first check your company`s human resources department to determine the basis for withholding a contribution.
(Perhaps you allowed a trigger without realizing it.) However, if you have not approved the contribution and the company refuses to refund the contribution, you can file a complaint with a federal or regional administrative authority. However, given the amount and potential political consequences of such a challenge, you can work with your company to try to reform the process by which your employer claims charitable contributions so that all employees` contributions are truly voluntary.
