Salaried employee pay is calculated using the employee’s compensation rate in Workday. Partial months will be paid by dividing the rate by the number of working days in current pay period and multiplying by the employee’s pay period rate to provide a daily rate of pay. Paid working days are considered to be Monday through Friday and include holidays.
Nevada Revised Statutes 21.020 and 70.040 require all employers, including the Nevada System of Higher Education, to execute legally served wage garnishments against an employee’s pay. When served, the Payroll Office will advise the employee of the garnishment to allow him the opportunity to resolve the matter prior to having the garnishment withheld. Effective 10/01/89, Chapter 31 was amended to allow 120 day continuing garnishments. Title 3 of Public Law 90-321 prohibits garnishment of more than twenty-five percent of the aggregate disposable earnings of an individual in any work week, or to that amount of the net weekly wage with exceeds 30 times the current federal minimum hourly wage, if this is a lesser amount that twenty-five percent of the aggregate disposable earnings. However, this restriction of the amount does not apply in the case of any order of any court for the support of any person; any order of any court of bankruptcy under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Act; or any debt due for any state or federal tax. “Disposable earnings” means the part remaining after deduction of any amount required by law to be withheld (exemptions for NSHE employees are federal taxes and retirement contributions).
