Adopted by President’s Cabinet 5/22/18

East Georgia State College considers the acceptance and settlement of just and honest debts to be a mark of personal responsibility. Failure to meet personal financial obligations causes discredit to the college. The college is required by law to accept and process garnishments served by officials of a court of law. Upon receipt of the garnishment, the college may counsel the employee. Repeated instances of default in payment by the employee after appropriate counseling shall be considered sufficient grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Other mandated payments such as child support, tax levies, educational loans, etc. may be deducted from an employee’s salary upon receipt of the validly issued court order.
