The Wage Deduction Authorization Form is use to obtain an employee's written authorization for wage deductions.

Employers should keep in mind the following caveats about certain wage deductions listed on this form:

  •  Line 7 Deductions (repairing/replacing Company equipment): deductions for this purpose that take the pay below minimum wage, or that cut into an exempt, salaried employee's salary, are allowed only in the case of misappropriation of money by the employee; in addition, the employer must be able to prove that the employee was personally responsible for the misappropriation.
  • Line 8 Deductions (cost of uniforms): employers should be cautious as this type of deduction is restricted by federal wage and hour regulations - see the provision for uniform cost deductions in Part 531 of the regulations (Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part § 531) (See also Section 30c12 of the Department of Labor's Field Operations Handbook. Regarding the cost of furnishing and maintaining uniforms, Section 30c12 states that where the wearing of clean uniforms is required by law, by the employer, or by the nature of the work, the financial burden of furnishing or maintaining these clean uniforms may not be imposed upon the employees if to do so would reduce their wages below the minimum wage (see 531.3(d)(2), 531.32(c), and 531.35).
  • Line 9 Deductions (cost of meals/lodging): See Part 531 of the wage and hour regulations, as well as Sections 30c00 - 30c09 of the Field Operations Handbook.

POSTING NOTICES: As required by the Texas Workers' Compensation Act, employers must post: Notice of Coverage (or non-coverage), and Notice of the Ombudsman Program. Refer to the "Printable Posters and Notices" section to download the posters.


In addition to the required Posters listed above, employers must provide written notification to employees as follows:

Employers Covered By Workers Compensation: Notice 6. 
In addition to posting Notice 6 in the workplace, a written copy of Notice 6 must be given to all newly hired employees, which includes a statement of their right to reject workers’ compensation coverage and retain their common law right of action.

Employers Not Covered By Workers Compensation: Notice 5.
In addition to posting Notice 5 in the workplace, a written copy of Notice 5 must be given to all newly hired employees.

All Employers: Change in Coverage Status*.
A written notice of coverage or non coverage must be given to employees whenever there is a change in coverage status. For example: If the employer obtains workers compensation coverage, employees must be given written notice of the coverage (Notice 6), which must include a statement of their right to reject workers’ compensation coverage and retain their common law right of action. If at any time the employer cancels or has coverage terminated, written notice of non-coverage must be provided to all employees (Notice 5).

Injured Employees   
The Notice of Injured Employee Rights and Responsibilities in the Texas Workers’ Compensation System must be provided to the employee whenever an injury occurs. Provide the injured employee a copy of this notice along with a copy of the completed injury report (DWC Form-1) at the time the injury is reported to the insurance carrier.

*Note: employers that do not have workers’ compensation insurance (non-subscribers) OR an employer who discontinues or has workers’ compensation insurance terminated must file DWC Form-005 (“Employer Notice of No Coverage or Termination of Coverage”) with the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), Division of Workers’ Compensation.

Employers can use Form S-1 to assess workloads in order to determine staffing needs. Job positions that are service oriented, such as receptionists, sales clerks, waitpersons and cashiers—present a challenging problem in determining adequate staffing levels. One of the best ways to determine staffing levels is to collect information about each employee’s workload activity. It also will determine what types of employees may be best utilized (e.g., full-time, part-time, temporaries, independent contractors).
