On : 12.1.3 version, Wage Attachments/Garnishments

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------

Garnishment was erroneously withheld on a Supplemental Pay check after the Total Owed was was already deducted and element was end dated

Details:

- Initial garnishment set up for pay period ending 11/21 and $248.81 deducted on the 11/25 paycheck
- $218.23 deducted on the 12/11 paycheck
- $262.93 deducted on the 12/23 paycheck
- $145.91 deducted on the 1/8 paycheck and with this deduction met the cumulative limit of $875.88 (pay period ending 1/2/2016)
- $875.88 deducted on the 1/23 profit sharing paycheck when it should have been $0 (Pay period ending 1/2/2016)

It appears this has to do with the timing of the garnishment limit being satisfied on the regular pay for the same pay period that the supplemental profit sharing was processed.  For some reason when the garnishment element was processed it ignored the amounts previously taken on the regular paychecks and went ahead and withheld the full amount since this would have been under the 25% disposable withholding limit.
 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------

The deduction should not have been collected from the Supplemental Run (12/20/2015 - 01/02/2016 (Payment Date 01/23/2016)

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

- Initial garnishment set up for pay period ending 11/21 and $248.81 deducted on the 11/25 paycheck
- $218.23 deducted on the 12/11 paycheck
- $262.93 deducted on the 12/23 paycheck
- $145.91 deducted on the 1/8 paycheck and with this deduction met the cumulative limit of $875.88 (pay period ending 1/2/2016)
- $875.88 deducted on the 1/23 profit sharing paycheck when it should have been $0 (Pay period ending 1/2/2016)
