A wage garnishment, defined by the United States Department of Labor, is any legal or equitable procedure through which some portion of a person's earnings are required to be withheld by an employer for the payment of a debt. Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act limits the amount of an employee's earnings that may be garnished. The amount subject to garnishment is based on the employee's "disposable earnings."
