(RIVERWOODS, ILL., September 25, 2002) — Garnishing employees’ wages for child support, taxes or creditor or student loan payments is a complex and evolving area involving federal law that can be ambiguous and individual state laws that further complicate matters for employers.

Moore, JD, and published by CCH INCOPORATED (CCH), a provider of tax and employment law information and software, is an easy-to-understand manual that leads payroll managers, accountants and corporate attorneys through the processing of various types of garnishments and prioritizing of multiple garnishments.
