Title:

Mastering Wage Garnishment Administration: Tips And Strategies For Multi-State Employers

SKU:WT-1001328
Format: Webinar
Description:

Employers are receiving an ever-increasing number of orders to withhold wages, which are often related to back taxes, defaulted student loans, back child support or alimony, and court judgments.

It's important to understand your obligations when receiving these creditor garnishments, income withholding orders, and tax levies, since they are legally binding documents, and failure to comply exposes you to liability for the employee's entire debt.

Consider this example: In Oklahoma, an appeals court ordered an employer to pay the debtor's full amount, which totaled more than $10,000, because the employer had not provided an answer to a garnishment immediately and did not provide subsequent answers after each pay period as required under the applicable law.

Don't let tricky wage garnishment administration challenges lead to costly fines and massive payments. Participate in the interactive webinar "Mastering Wage Garnishment Administration: Tips and Strategies for Multi-State Employers" and learn your compliance obligations.

Learning Objectives:
