Mandatory or involuntary deductions are deductions which an employee has no control. The employer is required by federal and/or state law to deduct a certain amount of the employee's pay and send (remit) it to an institution or governmental agency for the purpose of satisfying the employee's debt, or contribution to the employee's retirement account, or tax withholding.
Listed below are mandatory deductions that must be activated when a qualified deduction order is properly presented:
A court ordered deduction is a garnishment or your wages that is issued to the university. We are obligated by law to withhold from your pay and remit to the appropriate agency on your behalf. Your wages can be garnished because of debts to creditors, federal and state tax levies, bankruptcy, student loans or child support. Sometimes these deductions are based on your disposable income. Disposable income is defined as any salary payment due you minus any mandatory deductions, i.e. taxes, retirement. Whenever we receive a court ordered deduction we do everything possible to notify you in advance of the deduction.
