The signed authorization should include a clear statement of the amount and terms of the loan and the amount of the deduction. The employer must keep a record of wage payments, which should include all deductions, showing the reason for the deduction; the amount deducted; and in the case of a loan repayment, the total amount of the loan for which the deductions are made. The amount and general purpose of any deduction must also be included on the statement of deductions provided with each paycheck (KY Rev. Stat. Sec. 337.060).
