Effective Date: January 1, 1993
A garnishment is a legal deduction of a specified sum from wages to satisfy a creditor. If departments receive documents claiming to garnish the wages of their employees, such documents must be immediately forwarded to the Payroll Department of the Controller's Office. The Controller's Office will obtain validation of the claim against the employee and advise the employee to seek a release. If the employee fails to obtain a release prior to the validation of the claim, the Controller will begin deductions until a release is received by the University.
