Why Should You Attend:

The federal rules now require that a standard Income Withholding Order (IWO) be used for all child support withholding garnishments. This webinar will review this form and its requirements. And although the IWO can include all the information necessary to comply with the order, employers must familiarize themselves with both federal and state regulations to avoid penalties and liabilities. In addition, state law may address some issues the federal law is silent on such as allowing for the collection of administration fees and how to calculate child support withholding when the employee does not have enough money to cover all support orders in effect. But withholding monies for child support is not the only requirement that applies to providing for a child, medical support orders are required to be processed by payroll as well. And these orders have their own rules and regulations on both the federal and state level. Apart from clarifying the above mandates, this webinar will also provide examples for calculating child support.

This 90-minute presentation will help you stay updated with regulations and best practices for handling child support withholding orders within a payroll environment. The attendee will come away with knowledge on how to calculate child support in all types of scenarios including proration when the wages are insufficient to cover the withholding orders. In addition, best practices for how to accept, acknowledge, process and pay over child support will be discussed.
