Topic Background

The Consumer Credit Protection Act is designed to ensure fair and proper treatment of people with debts. Garnishment orders include creditor debt to child support. What if your employee has more than one garnishment order or declares bankruptcy because they are overwhelmed by their situation? How does the employer handle the situation? How do the garnishment orders get prioritized? What if the amount adds up to more than the employee can bear? What are the limits on take home pay and disposable earnings? What if an ex-employee fails to cash their paycheck and you have lost touch with them?
