As an employer, you need to understand the specific obligations for each type of wage garnishment in every state in which you do business and, often, every state in which you have employees. You also need to stay current with legislative changes, ensure timely and accurate payments, and submit required responses to courts and agencies on time and in the form they require.

To help you track these responsibilities and support compliance, we created a checklist covering each step of the wage garnishment process:

  1. Receive orders
  2. Analyze orders
  3. Notify and respond
  4. Calculate garnishment(s)
  5. Disburse payments
  6. Facilitate the process
  7. Assist state agencies
  8. Monitor the process
