Yes, wages up to 25% can be garnished. FMLA just ensures your job position, it doesn't stop one from taking your wages if you owe a debt. I hope this helps and good luck!

So the garnishment will not suspended or stopped until I come back from maternity leave. I will only be getting 80% of my check and this will be a financial burden of the garnishment is still deducted. Any suggestions.......

Expert:  BizAttorney replied 8 years ago.
They will just take 25% of 80% instead of the full 100%, meaning that they should take less out than they did before. Your employer is somewhat stuck because they have been ordered to garnish your wages by the Court.
