Customer Question

I have a judgement against me from a civil suit. The plantiff filed to garnish my wage, I would like to continue working for this company as a sole proprietor (as a contractor) under a company name. Is this legal for the company to hire me as a contractor so my wage is not garnished

No. That will be considered to be fraud both on your part and on the part of your employer. The facts are very clear and this would be quite blatant.

As well, your employer could also be required to garnish any monies owing to you. In fact any of your clients could face such an order if you become a sole proprietor and have other clients. Accounts receivable are garnishable. It is not only wages that you have to worry about.

I'm sorry that this is not the answer you were hoping for.
