I agree with Kez, it is "Rate" of pay, if it had been a deduction, it would have had something in the record saying he was punished for something (usually away without authority) and would have said "forfeit" pay, and how much (eg "forfeit 60 days pay")
Hopefully it wasn't "me" that told you that??? (I have been wrong before)
