Supplements or deductions
Your manager decides whether salary supplements are to be paid out with your first salary or after the calendar month to which the supplements refer. The same applies to salary deductions.
If the salary deduction cannot be made according to the relevant decision, the employee is responsible for paying in an amount corresponding to the salary deduction in the time and manner determined by the employer.
Please contact your line manager or the human resources officer within your department/faculty or equivalent.
