Opt-out versus opt-in for company donations

3 posts in this topic

We received an undated letter stating we needed to "opt-out" to donating $50.00 to the employee christmas fund by Nov. 25th. If we did not 'Opt-out" we would be automatically invoiced on our monthly community fees invoice. Is this legal? At a minimum it is not a good business practice.

I assume the letter came from your employer? If not from whom did it come? What is a "monthly community fees invoice"?

Obviously, the legality depends on the applicable state law, and you didn't identify your state. That said, I'm not aware of any state that allow an employer to take deductions from an employee's paycheck except for: (1) payroll taxes and other deductions mandated by federal or state law; (2) union dues (if applicable); or (3) things for which the employee has consented (e.g., medical insurance, 401k, etc.).
