At any time following service to the payor of the income withholding order and notice to payor under subsection (a) of this section, and if no support has been assigned, the department, acting pursuant to W.S. 20-6-105(a)(ii), or the obligee may prepare, file with the clerk of the court and mail to the payor and the obligor an amended notice to payor decreasing the amount to be withheld from the obligor's income. The amended notice is binding upon the payor from the date of receipt.
(c) In addition to subsection (a) of this section and in those cases in which it is known that the obligor may be placed in employment with a payor by a labor or other private or public employment referral organization referring individuals to employment and operating within this state, the obligee or the department may prepare, file with the clerk of court and mail to the referring organization certified copies of the income withholding order and the notice to payor or an amended notice to payor pursuant to subsection (b) of this section. The obligee or the department shall send the notice to payor under this subsection within the dates specified under subsection (a) of this section. The referring organization shall at the time of placement, forward the notice to payor to each payor with which the organization places the obligor. Upon forwarding the notice to payor, a labor or other nongovernmental organization shall notify the district court that the income withholding order has been forwarded to the payor. The district court shall, at the time it sends the withholding order and the notice to payor to the referring organization, include a self-addressed, stamped return envelope for the referring organization's use for notification to the district court. Additional envelopes shall be available to the referring organization upon request. Any labor or other nongovernmental organization failing to provide notification to any payor at the time of placement as required by this subsection is liable for an amount of up to fifty dollars ($50.00) that the payor should have withheld from the obligor's income. The department of workforce services may be reimbursed by the department of family services for its costs incurred under this act.
