Texas Wage Garnishment

OnDemand Webinar (59 minutes)

食色软件app下载Employees can get very upset when their paycheck is not what they expected. Sometimes they can be embarrassed that they have a personal issue that bleeds over into their place of employment, and may worry how that will affect their job or future opportunities. Understanding how to process orders of support and tax levies, knowing what the limits are on wages that can be garnished and being prepared to answer questions from employees on how you calculated their disposable pay will be invaluable the next time you are faced with a garnishment. You will walk through examples and calculations for accurate payroll deductions for garnishments.
