Wages earned after the date of filing bankruptcy and not yet paid are exempt. Furthermore, any exemption for earned but
unpaid wages stems from 15 U.S.C. § 1673(a) which states:“The maximum part of the aggregate disposable earnings of an
individual for any work week which is subjected to
garnishment may not exceed (1) 25 per centum of his
disposable earnings for that week, or (2) the amount by
which his disposable earnings for that week exceed thirty
times the Federal minimum hourly wage . . . in effect at the
time the earnings are payable, whichever is less . . . .
Thus, this is not a simple matter for sure and you need to present your documentation to your bankruptcy attorney to make a proper determination, but generally your earned but unpaid wages are usually going to be exempt in most cases.
