Small business payroll: How to handle wage garnishment

by admin 8. October 2012 04:11

As a business owner, it is not uncommon you hire some employee that has some sort of wage garnishment on their earnings.

Wage garnishment is a legal procedure in which a person’s earnings are required by court order to be withheld by an employer for the payment of a debt such as child support.

Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) prohibits an employer from discharging an employee whose earnings have been subject to garnishment for any one debt, regardless of the number of levies made or proceedings brought to collect it. 

ezPaycheck payroll software comes with the flexible features and you can add a new custom deduction fieldly easily for wage garnishment. You can deduct it from ezPaycheck automatically by the fixed amount or by percent.
