Payroll deduction for charitable contributions

When employees have a deduction taken from their check for charity, and the charity is the organization they are currently working for, how is this handled in Quickbooks? The deduction was made from their paychecks and Its showing up in a revenue account and in a payroll deduction account. It seems like it should be moved from the payroll deduction account, but maybe not, I'm not sure if I need to do anything.

I'm fairly new to working with a nonprofit and I know there is more reporting needed, so I want to make sure this has been handled correctly.
