Webinar Description

You receive a child support order on an employee from a court.  Did you know that if your payroll department over-withholds or under-withholds on this garnishment that your company can be held liable for the child support withholdings?  Your company could wind up paying the child support order and reimbursing the employee for the amount in excess of the correct withholding.  Even if the employer uses a payroll service, the employer is held liable if the order is not processed correctly. Employers and payroll professionals need to be aware of the most serious mistakes they make when working with child support orders and other types of garnishments.  Employers sometimes are unable to withhold the amount required by the order.  Sometimes, as an employer, you have to violate the order so that you can comply with the law.  Join payroll expert Pamela Shull as she discusses the ins and outs of this difficult payroll compliance matter.
