§ Mr. Willetts
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will list the(a) upward and 1797W (b) downward payroll adjustments an employer may have to make as a result of the policies of his Department. 
§ Jane Kennedy
There are limited circumstances under which an employer may need to make payroll adjustments as a result of our policies.
Statutory Maternity Pay and Statutory Sick Pay are both paid by employers and may require payroll adjustments. Employers may also need to implement a Deduction from Earnings Order if the Child Support Agency deems this necessary to ensure a non-resident parent fulfils their responsibilities as a parent.
It is also sometimes necessary, where voluntary agreements have failed, for employers to administer an Attachment of Earnings Order in relation to the enforcement of debt recovery through the civil courts.
