Does This Mean That Deductions Are Never Allowed From The Salary?

Deductions may be made in the following situations:
  • Employees need not be paid for any work week in which they perform no work.
  • Deductions may be made when the employees are absent from work for a day or more for personal reasons.
  • Deductions may be made when the employees are absent from work for a day or more for sickness or a disability if the employer has a bona fide plan, policy or practice of providing compensation for loss of salary occasioned by both sickness and disability.
