Q. In this morning’s mail I received a letter from some group I have never heard of asking for payroll information on an employee. The letter said, “This information is necessary to enforce court-ordered child support.” It does not say that it is a subpoena or a garnishment, and there is no court order or any kind of a waiver from the employee. I have already tossed it in the trash, but I don’t want to do something wrong. Do I need to dig it out? –S.W.
A. No need to dig it out. While child support is one of the few things that a Texas employee’s wages can be garnished for, you need to receive a court order. If you do, comply.
Failing to do so can make you liable for the amount not paid, plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs and a fine of up to $200 for each failure to withhold.
