Symptoms

Employee transferred from one company to another.  This employee had a garnishment which began in company 1 and must continue in Company 2.  User mirrored the garnishment setup from Company 1 to Company two (i.e. same GARNID, etc).  The only change is that the User reduced the Limit on Garnishment Spec Data 3 page by the balance already deducted from the employee.  Now when this employee is calculated rather than calculating an amount to deduct, it is calculating an amount to REFUND.

Example:  
Garnishment Limit Amount on Company 1 was $300.00.  Employee had a balance of $200 for this garnishment.  Employee transfers companies. 

Customer uses same Garnishment ID, but changes the limit to $100 (which includes that amount already taken).  System calculates the garnishment on Company 2 and determines that the limit is $100, but $200 has already been deducted and calculates a (negative)  <$100.00>.
