I'm sure it's LEGAL, but I don't know if I would like my employer for doing that. On the other hand, most employers do not appreciate the extra effort involved in dealing with court orderd attachments to wages. By not taking care of your obligations you have placed an additional burden on your employer, they're just letting you know that they aren't happy about it. Having child support deducted from an employee's wages can be a voluntary action or one due to garnishment proceedings. Generally in either sitiuation the employer can charge an amount specified by the court, the reason being to offset administration costs. It is illegal for your employer to charge a fee for taking a court order on child support and deductions off your pay check because they are not allow to in the court of law. Only the court can do that off your bank acount.
