  pliance with an income execution order


  Section 1. Paragraph 1 of subdivision (g) of section 5241 of the civil
practice law and rules, as amended by chapter 270 of the laws  of  2013,
is amended to read as follows:
  (1)  (A)  An  employer or income payor served with an income execution
shall commence deductions from income  due  or  thereafter  due  to  the
debtor  no  later  than  the  first pay period that occurs fourteen days
after service of the execution, and shall remit  payments  within  seven
business days of the date that the debtor is paid. Each payment remitted
by  an  employer  or  income  payor  shall  include  the  information as
instructed on the income execution and shall be payable to and  remitted
to  the  state disbursement unit established in this state in accordance
with section six hundred fifty-four-b of title forty-two of  the  United
States  Code unless the income execution is for spousal support only, in
which case the payments shall be payable to and remitted to  the  credi-

or her employment is terminated by resignation or dismissal at any  time
after  service  of  the execution, the levy shall thereafter be ineffec-

stated  or  re-employed  within  ninety  days after such termination. An
employer must notify the issuer  promptly  when  the  debtor  terminates
employment and provide the debtor's last address and name and address of
the  new  employer,  if  known.  An  income payor must notify the issuer
promptly when the debtor no longer receives income and must provide  the
debtor's  last  address  and  the  name  and address of the debtor's new
