What Can my Employer Lawfully Deduct from my Wages

Under California law, an employer can lawfully deduct the following from an employee’s wages:

Deductions that are required of the employer by federal or state law, such as income taxes or garnishments.

Deductions expressly allowed in writing by the employee to cover insurance premiums, hospital or medical dues or other deductions not amounting to a rebate or deduction from the wage paid to the employee.

Deductions allowed by a collective bargaining or wage agreement, specifically to cover health and welfare or pension payments.
