I just got a packet in the mail from another state where an employee has apparently defaulted on his student loans to the point that they are garnishing his wages. Fortunately, we utilize an "employee leasing" situation, so technically I am not his employer - rather the leasing company is - so they have to deal with it.

It kind of freaked me out and made me mad to see that his (the employee) not tending to his matters well subjects me to this additional hassle of having to withhold this money and remit it each pay period. I would be subject to federal penalties if something happens and the $$ doesn't get there.

Have any of y'all dealt with this? Can it reflect on the employees status (i.e. be mentioned on a performance review)?
