Has your nonprofit ever received a garnishment order? Do you know what to do if you get one? Any employer could potentially receive a garnishment order. Wage garnishment generally occurs when an employer is required by a court to withhold the earnings of an employee for the payment of the employee’s debt (such as taxes or child support). If a nonprofit receives a garnishment order and fails to follow correct procedures, it might have to pay back all of the money owed by the employee. Garnishment can also be a tool for nonprofits who are seeking to recover damages from a lawsuit.

This 30-minute presentation explores the following:
• how to manage both sides of a garnishment;
• how to respond to a garnishment order; and
• how to seek garnishment payments.
