Payroll Deduction for the Collection of Traffic Fines
May 01, 2003
This procedure item applies to:
Fines imposed upon officers or employees of state-operated campuses of the State University of New York, and not paid, may be deducted from the salary and wages of the offending officer or employee when the traffic rules and regulations include such provisions as adopted by the college council and approved by the campus president or designee, or if directed by the Board of Trustees, by the Board of Trustees.
2. When such efforts have failed to cause the offending officer or employee to pay outstanding fines, such fines may be deducted from the salary or wages of the offending officer or employee as described below. Campuses are to establish their own procedures, forms, notification, and the like, which will clearly inform the offending officer or employee of such action to be taken.
2. The payroll officer will verify the request, enter the appropriate deduction amount in the PaySR and notify public safety that the deduction has been made and indicate from which check the deduction(s) will be made.
Should employees question the authority to deduct fines from salary checks, campuses are advised to print and distribute Appendix A (a statement which was prepared by the University Counsel's Office).
