Title:

Wage Attachments: Strategies for Multi-State Employers to Successfully Administer Garnishments and IRS Tax Levies

SKU:WC-1012762
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

Back taxes, defaulted student loans, back child support or alimony, court judgments - these are probably the most common reasons you may be required to withhold wages from your employees' paychecks.

It's important for employers to understand their obligations when they receive creditor garnishments, income withholding orders, tax levies and the like, since these are legally binding documents directing the employer to perform a specific function toward payment on an employee's debt.

Failure to comply exposes the employer to liability for the employee's entire debt or missed deductions and attorney fees plus punitive damages.

State laws concerning wage attachments are expanding and constantly fluctuate. Recently, courts have ruled that a non-attorney is engaged in the unauthorized practice of law when they answer a garnishment on behalf of a corporation. Therefore, keeping up on the latest information is critical to compliance.

Don't miss our informative webinar designed for multi-state employers.

You'll learn:

  • What to do when you receive a notice of a wage attachment
  • Penalties that may be assessed for the improper handling of wage attachments, such as income withholding orders, tax levies, and creditor garnishments
  • Administrative fees you generally may be able to charge for the different types of wage attachments
  • How far the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) and state laws go to protect employees from discrimination and
  • discharge due to wage attachments
  • Tricky compliance issues affecting multi-state employers, including determining which state law to apply to which type of attachment
  • What to do with wage attachments when an employee files for bankruptcy
  • How to administer chapter 13 repayment plans, especially when new wage attachments come rolling in
  • Tips for dealing with protesting employees who want the garnishment or tax levy stopped
  • If and when you have to accept voluntary wage assignments
  • And much more!

In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to legally master your compliance obligations when presented with a wage attachment. Register now for this informative event risk free.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
