Child and spousal support (Part II) : Beyond Payroll/Garnishment Department and Wage Withholding

Duration: 90 Minutes
Employers are faced with many requirements in order to comply with federal and state laws involving various aspects of the child support program. Requirements go beyond the payroll/garnishment department and wage withholding. Program requirements such as future lump sum payments, termination reporting, answering verification of employment must be handled by the department(s) with the most knowledge. Employers must understand the many different requirements and be familiar with the best options for receiving income withholding orders, and reporting of required information. Both federal and state laws change and it is critical to remain current.

Topic Background
Collection of support has improved in the past 20 years, but some state agencies and the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) continue to look for additional sources of income that can be attached. OCSE has implemented and continues to enhance electronic methods to issue support orders, one-time orders for lump sum payments and receive required information electronically as well. OCSE is able to identify state agencies as well as employers that do not follow requirements and laws. OCSE continues to try to include employer mandates in federal legislation. It is critical that employers know the requirements, implement the best tools available to prepare themselves for the future.
