Your job and wage garnishment

The question of whether your job is safe, if you have been levied a court order to garnish your wages is generally, yes. As we described in a previous page, you don’t really need to worry about your employer terminating you just because you were given an order to have your wages garnished. Federal law protects you – to a certain extent.

However, today, we try to go into a bit more detail on the nuances of this scenario if you are interested to know more. Employers generally cannot fire someone for a first time garnishment, BUT for second and subsequent cases, they are not bound under Federal law to keep on employing you.

Herein lies the only problem. Also, state laws may differ, and this is why it is a subjective issue, and the bottom line is that it largely depends on your relationship with your employer in the end.
