The Consumer Credit Protection Act is designed to ensure fair and proper treatment of people with debts. Garnishment orders include creditor debt to child support.
What if your employee has more than one garnishment order or declares bankruptcy because they are overwhelmed by their situation? How does the employer handle the situation? How do the garnishment orders get prioritized? What if the amount adds up to more than the employee can bear? What are the limits on take home pay and disposable earnings? What if an ex-employee fails to cash their paycheck and you have lost touch with them?

Garnishments are a real thorn in the side. They take excessive amounts of time to process and execute accurately. The boss just wants to fire the employee who loses control of their finances for wasting precious company resources. But we can’t do that nor can we? Join us to learn just what the obligations and limits are on how many garnishments your employer is required to manage for a single employee and how to process them quickly and efficiently. Also get a handle on how to communicate efficiently with the courts and collection agencies.
