Question about Payroll

If I paid $680 a week, and after the deductions it's $520, why does the $680 get withdrawn from my acc? That $160 does that get returned to me? If so when? New to this

    @fobtoronto,
    Because you are actually paying your employee 680 but the IRS and state require withholdings against wages. These withholdings are usually remitted once a month. It should actually be a little more because the employer needs to make a matching contribution of social security. In addition there is federal unemployment and state unemployment.
