The A to Z of Garnishments Part 3

The A to Z of Garnishments Part 3

We have discussed the legal aspect, now we need to turn our attention to the best practices for processing the garnishments within the payroll department. For example, how and when should payroll communicate with the employee concerning a garnishment? Should tracking reports be set up to ensure proper deductions and payments? These are just a few of the questions we will answer during this webinar.

Now that we have discussed the rules and regulations of Garnishments it is time to get down and do the math. In this webinar we will apply all that we learned in parts 1 and 2 by reviewing all types of examples of calculating garnishments. This will include how to prorate when an employee has two or more child support withholding orders and not enough disposable income to cover both; the proper calculations for a federal tax levy; what to do if the employee has a creditor garnishment and a child support withholding order and much, much more.

What you will learn

  • Best practices for communicating with employees and issuing parties for all types of garnishments
  • Best practices for processing garnishments in the payroll department
  • Examples for calculating child support when the employee has one, two and more Withholding Orders with and without arrears
  • Calculating the withholding for a federal tax levy
  • Calculating the withholding for a creditor garnishment
  • Examples of how to calculate the withholding and prioritize the order of distribution when an employee has more than one type of garnishment
