If Rice receives a Notice of Garnishment from a Texas court, Rice is ordered to withhold a certain amount of an employee’s wages to be paid toward a debt owed by the employee. Typically, a Notice of Garnishment may be issued in connection with child support payments, or IRS tax levies. Fax the Notice to the Office of the General Counsel. The Office of the General Counsel will work with the Payroll Department to comply with the order and to make sure the employee is notified.
The Office of the General Counsel does not obtain personal attorneys for faculty, staff or student.
For personal legal representation and services consult with your personal attorney. The Office of the General Counsel at Rice University represents and renders legal services solely to Rice University.
