How-To Tuesday: Adding a Wage Garnishment

Do you need to add a wage garnishment to an employees’ profile? PayWow makes it super easy to do so! Here’s how to get started:

From the dashboard, navigate to the employee directory. Once there, select the employee’s profile you wish to add a garnishment.

Once you have selected the employee’s profile, follow these steps to add a wage garnishment:

  1. Select ‘Deductions and Reimbursements’ from the dashboard

2. Then, select ‘Add Garnishment’ 

3. You will then need to set up the details of the garnishment. To do so:

  • Select the garnishment type
    • You can select between child support, support arrear, IRS levy, state tax levy, local tax levy, student loan, income execution, income agreement, bankruptcy, or other garnishment
  • Select the frequency of the garnishment
    • You will need to select whether the garnishment will occur every pay period or just once
  • Select the occurrences of the garnishment
    • You will need to select the number of payrolls from which the garnishment will be deducted
  • Select when the deduction will start
    • You can select the garnishment to start with the next payroll or with future payrolls
  • Lastly, select the amount to withhold
    • You can select either a fixed amount or a percentage

4. You can also attach a reference document. These would be documents that support garnishment of the employee’s pay such as a garnishment notice.

5. After you input all of the information, select ‘Save.’
