How to Stop Wage Garnishment in Pennsylvania
If you are being garnished, you likely want to know how to stop wage garnishment. Fortunately, you do have rights as a worker. You are protected from garnishment through federal and state laws.
Under federal law via the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA), an employer cannot fire an employee who is being garnished. If you are being garnished, you are entitled to keep your job and your regular paycheck. However, your employer can deduct the amount that is legally allowed from your paycheck.
Under Pennsylvania law, your employer cannot fire you if you are being garnished for child support, alimony, or marital property. You are also protected from garnishment if you are being garnished for taxes, union dues, or other payments that are automatically deducted from your paycheck.
