The U.S. Wage Garnishment Landscape: Through the Lens of the Employer

This is a follow-up to its initial 2014 wage garnishment analysis in a report entitled, Garnishment: The Untold Story.  For its most recent analysis, the ADP Research Institute used aggregated, anonymous 2016 payroll data of 12 million employees.  The study found that child support continues to be the top reason for wage garnishment (also known as income withholding.) The analysis shows garnishment rates by industry, by type, age group, gender, wage range, company size, and industry.
