Currently, the Labor Law expressly prohibits deductions from wages, with limited exceptions. Over the past few years, the New York State Department of Labor has issued several opinion letters severely limiting the types of permissible deductions—essentially forbidding any deductions not specifically set forth in pre-amendment Section 193.
