Pay Deductions & Setoffs
The law requires that CCRI make certain deductions from each employee's paycheck. Among these are applicable federal and state income taxes. CCRI also may deduct Social Security (FICA) taxes on each employee's earnings up to a specified limit, which is called the social security "wage base." CCRI matches the amount of social security taxes paid by each employee.
Eligible employees may voluntarily authorize deductions from their pay checks to cover the cost of participation in programs offered at the College, such as but not limited to:
- Charitable Donations (the SECA Campaign)
- Savings Plans (US Savings Bond Campaign, SRA's)
- Pre-tax Deductions ( health insurance, and supplemental retirement annuities)
- Union Dues
- Pursuant to RI State law, employee consent, written or electronic, is required prior to a deduction from the payment of wages
See other sections of this Employee Handbook and collective bargaining agreements for further details.
For questions concerning deductions that were made from an employee's paycheck or how they were calculated, employees should call the Payroll Department.
