You’ve Received a Child Support Garnishment Order: Now What?

Why Should You Attend?

Your Payroll Department just received a Child Support Wage Garnishment order. Now, what do you do? How do you process that order? What are the applicable rules and regulations? What if any best practices can you adopt? In this webinar we will discuss that and more.

The federal government has enacted rules that it requires States to follow when setting their own standards for implementing child support requirements. Among those requirements: filing procedures, deadlines for withholding and remitting and penalties and fines for violations. Each State can enact their own rules, which often differ from the minimum requirements set by federal law.

Employers in general, and payroll departments, in particular therefore need to know and comply with federal and state laws, and understand which laws apply to which child support garnishment orders.

There’s more, though. Federal rules also require employers, together with the applicable Child Support Enforcement Agency to complete a standard Income Withholding Order (IWO). Again, you will have to comply with federal and state regulations or face fines and penalties. Adding to that, requirements arising out of medical support orders, which employers and/or payroll departments must also process in compliance with rules and regulations.

This webinar will explore these areas and more.
