I got served with a income deduction for my employee: What do I do?

Florida law provides for income deduction orders which require employers to deduct child support and alimony from the wages of workers. Florida ain’t kidding around. Section 61.1301 Fla. Stat. (2013) provides that if an employer, the payor in the language of the statute, “fails to deduct the proper amount from the obligor’s income, the payor is liable for the amount the payor should have deducted, plus costs, interest, and reasonable attorney’s fees.”

If you get an income deduction in the mail, you should honor it. The order should be carefully reviewed and scrupulously honored. An Employer who gets served with this order and does not honor it, can be hauled into court, made to pay the money and hit with attorney fees.
