SUMMARY: Garnishment Calculation

 

Effective September 1, 1997, the Federal government mandated a minimum wage rate increase to $5.15 an hour. Due to this increase, the calculations for amounts subject to garnishment have changed. The guidelines listed below should be followed for calculating the garnishment withholdings on a biweekly basis:

  1. If the employee's disposable earnings are less than $309.00 for a biweekly pay period, pay the employee as if the employee's paycheck was not garnished.
  2. If the employee's disposable earnings are between $309.00 and $412.00 for a biweekly pay period, pay the employee $309.00.
  3. If the employee's disposable earnings are between $412.00 for a biweekly pay period, pay the employee 75% of the disposable earnings.

Regents are responsible for ensuring that these changes are reflected in all payroll checks issued on or after September 19, 1997 (i.e.; the payroll period 8/24/97-9/6/97).
