About This Course:

And now that laws requiring the reporting of new hires can quickly identify new employees - and in some states, Independent Contractors - who owe child support, understanding the correct process for handling garnishments - even before you might have to deal with one - is of the utmost importance, and one we'll help you conquer in this training session.

How much can be withheld per paycheck? What you do once a garnishment is satisfied? What to do if an employee quits before the garnishment is satisfied?
