|Training For Garnishments Law
As with all of the federal and state laws, garnishment rules and regulations must be followed to the letter - and with the constant threat of penalties for violating any one of them - it's no wonder why processing each and every garnishment is such a daunting task – and subject to errors.
For instance, if you received a garnishment or child support order, would you know: When should you begin a garnishment? How to you determine how much to withhold for child support? How much can be withheld per paycheck? What you do once a garnishment is satisfied? What to do if an employee quits before the garnishment is satisfied?
Don’t worry. Understanding all the laws and requirements regarding garnishments, child support orders, Federal and state levies, and student loan and credit garnishments can be overwhelming, but you can learn the specifics with this training course!
Learning Objectives: Training For Garnishments Law
This training session gives you tools to better understand the responsibilities that a company has regarding garnishments, Child Support orders, and levies under state and federal guidelines such as Consumer Credit Protection Act, IRS levy requirements, and state-specific levy and garnishment withholding requirements.
And now that laws requiring the reporting of new hires can quickly identify new employees - and in some states, Independent Contractors - who owe child support, understanding the correct process for handling garnishments - even before you might have to deal with one - is of the utmost importance, and one we'll help you conquer in this training session.
