New York Issues Proposed Regulations to Wage Deduction Law

New York State Department of Labor has released proposed regulations under its recently enacted Wage Deduction Law.  The Law, which went into effect in November 2012, permits employers to deduct certain amounts from employees’ wages, including deductions to recover wage overpayments, for repayments of employer loans, and to provide for the payment of items such as gym memberships, parking or mass transit passes and day care, among many other items.  The proposed regulations, accessible here, focus on authorized deductions for the benefit of the employee and deductions for advances and overpayments.
