Authorizing a Regular Payroll Deduction
I understand that I am under no obligation to contribute to United Way of Greater Rochester. If I decide to contribute to United Way by authorizing deductions from my
pay to be forwarded to United Way, it is a decision I make voluntarily. I understand that the amount I authorize to be deducted will be subtracted from my pay for any pay
period in 2020-2021 in which my pay is large enough to cover the deduction. If there is a pay period in which my pay is insufficient to cover the United Way deduction
after all legally required deductions are made, my employer will not make a United Way deduction for that pay period. If a United Way deduction is missed for
any reason, it will not be made up on a later date without my express written direction. I understand that I may revoke my United Way deduction authorization
at any time by informing my employer in writing, and that my revocation will be effective within four pay periods or eight weeks, whichever is sooner.
