This bill permits an employer to withhold a portion of an employee's wages for purchases authorized by employees made at events sponsored by organized and generally recognized charities that are affiliated with the employer where at least 20 percent of the profits from the event are being contributed to organized and generally recognized charities. Under current law, withholdings from an employee's wages are permitted for contributions directly to organized and generally recognized charities, not purchases made by an employee from third party vendors at events sponsored by charities affiliated with an employer. This bill will allow withholdings of an employee's wages for purchases made at events sponsored by charities where at least 20 percent of the profits from the event are being contributed to charities. This bill also permits public employees to request multiple payroll deductions for payment to multiple credit union accounts. The bill provides that a person holding public office, position or employment, whose compensation is paid by this State or by any board, body, agency, authority or commission thereof, may indicate in writing to the proper disbursing officer a desire to have more than one deduction to more than one credit union account and, once so indicated, such deductions must be made by the State Treasurer or disbursing officer, as appropriate, and must be transmitted to the treasurer of the credit union. Any such written authorization may be withdrawn with the State Treasurer or disbursing officer, as the case may be.
