IMPORTANT NOTICE Federal Wage Garnishment Law Effective July 1,1970 (For Attachment to Garnishment Order) The garnishment restrictions of Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act (15 U.S.C. 1673) provide that no court of the United States or of any State may make, execute, or enforce any order or process w hich provides for the garnishment of the aggregate disposable earnings of any individual for any w orkw eek in an amount w hich is in excess of the lesser of the follow ing restrictions: (1) 25 percent of the individual' s disposable earnings for the w orkw eek, or (2) the amount by w hich his disposable earnings for that w eek exceed 30 times the minimum w age under section 6(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. 206(a)(1) ). These restrictions do not apply in the case of (1) Court orders for the support of any person, (2) Court orders under Chapter XIII of the Bankruptcy Act, and (3) Any debt due for any State or Federal Tax. " Disposable earnings" is compensation paid or payable for personal services less any amounts required to be w ithheld by law . The law also prohibits an employer from discharging any employee because his earnings have been subjected to garnishment for any one indebtedness. The term " one indebtedness" refers to a single debt, regardless of the number of levies made or creditors seeking satisfaction. Whoever w illfully violates the discharge provisions of this law may be prosecuted criminally and fined up to $1000.00, or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both. A section or provision of the State law that requires a larger amount to be garnished than the Federal law permits is considered preempted by the Federal law . On the other hand, the State law provision is to be applied if it results in a smaller garnishment amount. Information regarding the Federal Wage Garnishment Law may be obtained from any office of Wage and Hour Division, U.S. Department of Labor. Room 14, Romark Building 3521 W.
