    A/R---Accounts Receivable---this means you owe the company money.

    The only time I have seen A/R on my check is when I was paying $20/week for a bad DR.

    That is what is confusing. How could you have ended up owing UPS money when you were a sorter/loader.

    Hope it wasn't much. You can kiss that money good bye.

    Richard Harrow Deplorable.

    I trust that since that "bad d/r" you have not driver released any packages since? I know I wouldn't d/r anything if I couldn't depend on my management team to back me up in situations such as this.

    I've only seen shortage on cod checks and couldn't get consignee to pay the extra or when they paid you too many hours, having deducted that way. Even with that, they made they employee aware of the discrepancy, and sign to have it deducted from their paycheck.

    One time I saw UPS deducted money from my check to pay for a package without asking or even telling me. I just saw it on the pay stub. I threw a fit because I did NOT owe for that package. It was damaged in building and was never even on my truck. My center manager knew what happened and agreed that money should never have been deducted. But I never could find out who Ok'ed trying to make me pay for it. Nobody would admit they did it.

    Doesn't seem legally sound to take money from a paycheck, without the payee knowing.

    Its not. I got my money back but if I hadn't noticed then UPS would have gotten away with it. And I could never find out who was to blame. The package was damaged on the boxline and the center manager already had it as a center write off.

    Have your center put in a payroll inquiry and they'll tell you what happened. I used to see these most frequently with payroll overpayments that they were recovering. In some states, we were required to have a signed letter from the employee authorizing the deduction. In other states, we weren't but always sent a courtesy letter explaining the issue first. They can also be generated from damage/DR/COD issues but those aren't terribly common.

    Someone had to manually key the item into the payroll system so someone has to know what it is.
