Is the employer entitled to a fee for the administrative costs of withholding?
Answer in detail:
Yes. At the employer's option, it may deduct a fee of $2.00 from the employee's pay each time income is withheld and child support is forwarded to the agency. The employer would deduct the amount of child support in addition to the fee. Exception to this would be if the permissible maximum limit pursuant to 15USC 1673 does not cover the full amount of child support and the fee.
Example: If the wage withholding order is for $115. per week, and the maximum amount subject to withholding for the particular employee is $115. per week, the employer may still deduct a fee of $2. from the employee's check. However, the employer must then submit only $113. to the clerk.
