Date: Employer-Garnishee INSTRUCTIONS TO EMPLOYER-GARNISHEE 1(a) The term "wages" means compensation paid or payable for personal services, whether denominated as wages, salary, commission, bonus, or otherwise, and includes periodic payments pursuant to a pension or retirement program; (b) the term "disposable wages" means that part of the earnings of any individual remaining after the deduction from those earnings of any amounts required by law to be withheld. 2. The term "Federal minimum hourly wage" means the highest Federal minimum hourly wage prescribed by Sec. 6(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. § 206(a)(1). (That wage is $5.15 per hour as of September 1, 1997 .) Any subsequent Changes in the Federal minimum hourly wage must be observed by the garnishee. The District of Columbia Consumer Credit Protection Act of 1971, approved and effective December 17, 1971, eliminates the prior method of withholding the prescribed percentages of gross wages due or to become due to the judgment debtor employee. It adopts the restrictions on garnishment amount of the Federal Consumer Protection Act (Title III), effective July 1, 1970, and provides for an exemption formula which applies directly to the aggregate disposable wages for any workweek or other pay period. In determining which of the two alternatives parts of the withholding formula (See front of this Writ) results in the least withholding, as per regulation of the Commissioner of the District of Columbia, (1) the 25% part of the formula is to be applied to the aggregate disposable wages for the entire pay period involved; and (2) the Federal minimum hourly wage part of the formula (as long as the Federal Minimum hourly wage is 5.15) is to be computed as follows: for a 2-week pay period 2 x 30 x $5.15 = $309.00, for a semi-monthly pay period 2 1/6 x 30 x $5.15 = $334.75, for a monthly pay period 4 1/3 x 30 x $5.15 = $669.45. 3. This Writ of Attachment remains in full force and effect as a continuing levy and lien upon the disposable wages as defined above, which are now due or to become due in the future to the defendant until such time as the judgment upon which this attachment is issued is fully paid. 4. In the event the defendant leaves your employ for a period of 90 days or less, and then is reemployed, this attachment shall remain in full force and effect and you are required to resume the withholdings from his disposable wages. 5. In the event the defendant leaves your employ for a period of 91 day for more, this attachment shall terminate and you shall return your copy of this attachment to the Court, setting forth the date of the termination in the space here provided. 6.
