|A key term here is
actual practice. Factors considered
when determining an actual practice include, but are not limited to: the
number of improper deductions; the time period during which the employer made
improper deductions; the number and geographic location of both the employees
whose salaries were improperly reduced and the managers responsible for
making the improper deductions; and whether the employer has a clearly
communicated policy permitting or prohibiting improper deductions.
