Increase accuracy, reduce risks, and
help keep your company in compliance.

One in fourteen employees today has some type of wage garnishment.* As federal, state and local laws and regulations become more complex, the risk of errors begins to fall on employers who can be penalized up to the full value of the employee’s judgment debt for missed or improper calculations, payments or other errors in processing or responses to the wage garnishment order. ADP SmartCompliance can help by:

  • Electronically processing new garnishment liens
  • Assisting your company in remaining compliant across all jurisdictions
  • Automating disbursements to reduce the possibility of penalties for late payments
  • Managing every step of the process, from initial wage garnishment order processing to agency relations, with complete transparency from one convenient location.
