401K and catch up contributions

We have an employee who has about $25 left before maxing out his 401K for this year and he wants to deduct catch up contributions for the remainder of the year.

The employee has asked HR that he wants his catch up to start on the same check that his 401K maxes out. Is an employee allowed to have both deductions taken from the same check or do I have to let him max out on one check before starting the catch up deductions?
Does it matter as long as he is maxing out for the year? I have looked at the IRS topics and am not finding anything on this.
