SB 99 now permits employers to deduct the cost of uniform rentals from an employee’s paycheck, including the cost of things like uniform shirts, pants, or job-related clothing. Previously, paycheck deductions were only permitted under specific circumstances, and could only be made for approved reasons listed in Indiana’s wage deduction statute (primarily, health insurance premiums and union dues).  Uniform and job-required equipment “purchases” were added to the statute in 2015; with SB 99, rental of uniform wear is now added to this list of approved deductions.
