Garnishment of Pay
Refer to the Policy Reason section.
Reason for policy
The University must comply with court-ordered garnishments of pay.
Human Resources is the sole organization authorized to accept a summons of garnishment
in the name of the University. Human Resources will notify the employee in writing
of the impending withholding of the employee’s earnings and then forward the summons
to the Payroll Department. Payroll will cause the withholding of an employee’s earnings
in response to the service of a summons of garnishment.
In the event a designated court official should leave a summons of garnishment in
a University of Georgia office other than Human Resources, the office receiving the
summons should immediately contact Human Resources.
