This excerpt taken from the NKE 10-Q filed Jan 7, 2009.
Payroll Deductions or Other Contributions. Unless otherwise determined by the Authorized Officer in accordance with this paragraph 6(b), each subscription shall include a payroll deduction authorization that will authorize the employing entity to make payroll deductions in an amount designated by the participant from each of the participant’s paychecks during the Offering. The designated amount to be deducted from each paycheck must be a whole percentage of not less than one percent or more than 10 percent of the participant’s Compensation (as defined below) for the period covered by the paycheck. If the Authorized Officer determines that payroll deductions are either illegal or inadvisable in any particular jurisdiction, the Authorized Officer may provide for alternate methods of contributing to the Plan for all participants in that jurisdiction, provided that no participant shall be permitted to contribute less than one percent or more than 10 percent of the participant’s aggregate Compensation paid during the Offering. Each employing entity will promptly remit the amount of payroll deductions or other contributions to the Company.
