Wage garnishment occurs when an employer withholds some of your earnings for the payment of a debt as the result of a court order or other equitable procedure.
It is illegal for your employer to fire you because your earnings have been garnished for any one debt, but that protection disappears if it happens a second time. The law also protects you by limiting the amount which may be garnished in any work week or pay period.
