Mandatory Deductions

The Mandatory Deductions section contains policy statements relevant to salary administration processes or functions that relate to mandatory deductions for all or some agencies and institutions.

The deductions covered in this section are those taken from employees’ gross pay and based on a law or statute that provides authority for an entity to garnish or make the deduction from employee wages or compensation.

Each policy statement contains Comptroller’s office guidance for the specific topic.

The policy statements link to a Definitions page if terms in the statement have a specific meaning related to the topic of discussion. When you come across a defined term, you can click on the word to open its definition.

For easy reference, links to additional resources and a Sources section listing statutory citations are also included in statements when appropriate.
