About the PR Garnishment Groups Form

Use this form to set up groups that determine the disposable earnings for calculating employee garnishments.

Since some enforcing agencies have different requirements for the determination of disposable earnings, this can be handled by having multiple garnishment groups. These garnishment groups are then referenced when setting up deduction and liabilities (in PR Deductions & Liabilities) that use a calculation method of N (Rate of Net), where the deduction is calculated as a percent of the net earnings.

The garnishment group is used to identify a group of earnings and deductions used as a basis for calculating garnishment deductions. Earnings and deduction codes are assigned in the grid on the Deductions/Earnings tab.
