I could use some advice on what steps I should take. I revoked Paydayavenue's authorization to garnish my wages and notified the responsible person in my company's payroll department. Today I received notifcation from payroll that they have received the garnishment from paydayavenue and if I do not provide my company a letter of full release from paydayavenue by Monday, they will take the garnishment out of my paycheck. Obviously, I am not going to get a release from paydayavenue.

What can I do to stop my company from deducting this garnishment? I corresponded with the person in payroll at the beginning of July letting them know that it was a voluntary authorization that I had revoked and that they may see something come through, and now it has finally hit.

As I only have 3 working days left to respond to my employer, I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Please ensure your employer knows the difference between a "wage garnishment" and a "wage assignment". Have you expalined the whole situation to your supervisor informing them of what is goin on? Like others stated you can revoke a "wage assignment" at any time! So your employers will be at major fault for going through with this IF you have revoked it with them in the past. I hope everything works out for you :?

I'm really surprised your employer doesn't understand the difference between garnishment and wage assignment, they are setting them self up for problems in the near future. If this company isn't even in the states then they are NOT lending legally, therefore, the entire wage assignment is totally illegal. If I were you, I would print off the laws about wage assignment verses garnishment, and plop it down on the desk of the person who is responsible for allowing this illegal attachment to go through, I would then make it known that they will be responsible for reimbursement if they do not follow the law. This just amazes me. :shock:

I am surprised also, we are a huge Fortune 300 company. I've been pouring over information to send to the payroll contact, but I've been trying to find information on what she should in turn reply to paydayavenue. If she doesn't know the difference between a assignment and a garnishment, I'm sure she isn't going to know how to respond other than paying them.

Why can she just stamp it rejected? If you've revoked wage assignment, then that's the only way she needs to respond.
"Wage assignment" revoked by employee per Ohio State laws, this wage assignment is hereby rejected.

Well, I sent her the information I could find and what you all have posted and I received a response that she will not honor their request, only if something comes through the courts as a garnishment. Thank you all!
