Deductions from Wages

​You must make certain deductions from the total compensation of both exempt and nonexempt employees. You are required to take out taxes and wage garnishments, if any. You can also take out money for certain work-related things.

In addition, the employee can volunteer to have certain monies deducted. Special rules apply to deductions for salaried employees. See Deductions from an Exempt Employees Salary.​​​​​​​​​
