Although few agencies in State government actually enter garnishment records for their own employees, a clear understanding of the process can benefit all payroll representatives when explaining these deductions to their employees. This holds particularly true in light of several recent updates to the processes for handling garnishments.
Several new or updated web documents provide detailed information and simulations about a range of garnishment-related topics.
· The Garnishment Process in AASIS offers new information about a range of topics, including the prioritization of multiple garnishments and the initiation of deductions upon receipt of a writ alone.
· Search for Vendor for Garnishment demonstrates how to determine, before a garnishment is created, whether a vendor already exists.
· Create Garnishment with Special Disposable Net for Health Insurance Premiums describes how a designation may be made when the language in a child or spousal support garnishment or a creditor garnishment calls for exemption of health insurance premiums from the employee's calculation of disposable net.
