I had my wages garnished by my employer without any advance

This answer was rated:

I had my wages garnished by my employer without any advance notice. What are my rights, if any, in the state of Illinois regarding wage garnishment.? I only was made aware of the garnishment when viewing my paycheck and had to request a copy of the judgment from the garnishment firm contracted by my employer. Do I have any recourse in this matter?

Thank you -

Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

Unfortunately, the employer does not have to inform the employee about any garnishment that is ordered by the court and the employer is actually obligated to garnish the salary of the employee subject to the court ordered wage garnishment and to forward the garnished amount to the judgment creditor or their attorneys.

I wish you the best of luck!
