New CCH Guide Takes The Guesswork Out Of Garnishment

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., August 11, 1999) – Employers faced with the critical and complex issues surrounding garnishment can now turn to Garnishment: A Practical Guide by CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of payroll and employment law information and software, for answers.

Authored by one of the nation’s top payroll experts, Vicki Lambert, CPP, Garnishment: A Practical Guide is an easy to use, timesaving tool that provides on-the-spot answers to help employers and payroll departments master the essentials of garnishment administration, reporting and record keeping.

"Managing the intricacies of garnishments is one of the most difficult challenges faced by employers, and the price of making a mistake is very high," said Jeff Kessler, CCH Human Resources marketing manager. "Employers who fail to comply with federal and state regulations face severe penalties and other liabilities."

What Employers Need to Know

Geared toward payroll and tax professionals, and written in plain English, Garnishment: A Practical Guide offers comprehensive treatment of wage garnishment, covering everything from administrative fees to withholding determination charts. The Guide is designed to eliminate needless steps and streamline the entire garnishment payment process, while keeping users current with government regulations to significantly lower the risk of fines and penalties. Definitive information is provided on federal and state requirements governing the handling of garnishments, including child support, tax levies, Department of Motor Vehicles fees, bankruptcy and student loans. Clear explanations of both federal and state laws help professionals make sense of the complicated garnishment regulatory scheme.

Comprehensive Coverage Ensures Compliance

Workplace law has become increasingly complex, with the passage of such legislation as the Family Support Act of 1988, which gives companies nationwide full responsibility for calculating and deducting the proper garnishment amounts from an employee’s earnings.

In addition to facing fines and penalties, a company that fails to make the proper deductions may become responsible for making such payments on behalf of an employee.

"The risk of noncompliance is significant, as are the resulting costs," said Kessler. "By consulting the Guide, payroll professionals can substantially reduce the employer’s risk of fines and penalties by making the proper calculations of disposable net income, proper assessment of applicable statutory limits on garnishable wages, correct calculation of child support limits and appropriate assessment of administrative fees."

Timesaving Tools Add Value

Written in a clear and concise style, the Guide features forms, helpful lists, illustrative tables and charts, sample entries, instructions for hard copy and electronic reporting, new hire federal and state reporting regulations, state-by-state comparative charts and much more. Also included are sample calculations, formulas and key contact information for government offices.
