§12-3-13b. Voluntary deductions by State Auditor from salaries of employees to pay association dues or fees and to pay supplemental health and life insurance premiums.
Any officer or employee of the State of West Virginia may authorize that a voluntary deduction from his or her net wages be made for the payment of membership dues or fees to an employee association. Voluntary deductions may also be authorized by an officer or employee for any supplemental health and life insurance premium, subject to prior approval by the Auditor. Such deductions shall be authorized on a form provided by the Auditor of the State of West Virginia and shall state: (a) The identity of the employee; (b) the amount and frequency of such deductions; and (c) the identity and address of the association or insurance company to which such dues shall be paid. Upon execution of such authorization and its receipt by the office of the Auditor, such deductions shall be made in the manner specified on the form and remitted to the designated association or insurance company on the tenth day of each month: Provided, That voluntary other deductions, as approved and authorized by the Auditor, may be made in accordance with rules proposed by the Auditor pursuant to article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code: Provided, however, That deductions shall be made at least twice monthly. Deduction authorizations may be revoked at any time thirty days prior to the date on which the deduction is regularly made and on a form to be provided by the office of the State Auditor: Provided further, That nothing in this section shall interfere with or remove any existing arrangement for dues deduction between an employer or any political subdivision of the state and its employees.
