Written by Amorette Nelson Bryant, who was recently appointed by the Uniform Law Commission as an observer for the Drafting Committee on a Wage Garnishment Act and was a past chair of both the APA GATF Child Support Subcommittee and Garnishment Subcommittee, Complete Guide to Federal and State Garnishment brings the payroll professional up-to-date on the latest federal and state laws and regulations affecting this ever-changing area. It is your one-stop source for answers to critical questions, such as:

Does the amount exempt from garnishment change when the minimum wage goes up? How do I determine the wages to which the garnishment applies? If an employee is subject to more than one garnishment, which has priority? Which state's rules do I use when I receive a child support order sent from another state? State or federal law - which applies for creditor garnishment and support? Are there alternatives to remitting withheld child support via EFT/EDI? How do I handle garnishments when employees are paid a draw against salary?
