2,234: Wage Garnishments and Assignments

Last Revised: August 2005

Nevada Revised Statutes 21.020 and 70.040 require all employers, including the University, to execute legally served wage garnishments against an employee's pay. In such instances, the Payroll Office will advise the employee of the garnishment, when served, to allow him the opportunity to settle the matter prior to pay date, thereby avoiding the actual withholding of pay to satisfy the garnishment.

A signed release from levy must be in Payroll by payday or the monies deducted will be forwarded to the levying agency.
