In addition to deducting the amount of support as required by the court order, an employer must deduct up to $15 per month from the wages of an employee whose wages have been garnished for support. This amount is sent to the Mississippi Department of Human Services to cover its administrative costs (MS Code Sec. 93-11-111). There is additional information on garnishments.
In addition to deducting the required amount of support, the employer may deduct $2 for each intrastate withholding to cover its own administrative costs related to the child or spousal support order (MS Code Sec. 93-11-111).
Mississippi employees may make assignments of future wages as security for the purchase of goods. However, an employer need not honor such an assignment unless it had notice of the arrangement prior to delivery of the goods and agreed in writing to the assignment (MS Code Sec. 71-1-45).
