Garnishments

Effective Date: 06/01/95

Purpose:

To provide a means of equitably handling garnishments against College employees.

Policy:

Centenary College does not assist creditors in collecting personal debts from employees except legally required by garnishment proceedings. A garnishment is a court order attaching an employee's earnings to satisfy a debt which he/she has incurred.

When a garnishment order is issued to the College by the Court, a Finance & Administration Office representative shall contact the employee and arrange for financial counseling if appropriate.

Should the College continue to receive garnishments of the wages of an employee, disciplinary action may be taken.
