Incorrect Naming Convention for Deduction Element For DEO (Deductions From Earnings Order) as it is not Court Order

(Doc ID 2031595.1)

Last updated on JULY 15, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (UK) - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Where an employee has a deductions from earnings order (DEO) from the Child Support Agency (CSA) their payslip shows “Non Voluntary Deductions: Court Order”.

This is incorrect because a DEO is not a court order.

In order to comply with section 8 of the Employment Rights Act, payslips must show the amount of any deductions and “the purposes for which they are made”. This has been confirmed by recent case law (Ridge v Her Majesty’s Land Registry).

Please confirm when this will be corrected, as we cannot continue to show DEO deductions as "Court Orders"
