south carolina wage garnishment
Many states have different ways of garnishing wages, and if you’re not well read on your state’s statutes you may be wondering what your options are. In North Carolina, the answer is simple: wage garnishment, which is commonly known as garnishment for wages.
In North Carolina, the courts may order a garnishment of your wages if youre not living in North Carolina, or if youre incarcerated, or if your wages are being garnished for the benefit of your employer. In South Carolina, the courts may order a garnishment of your wages due to your being a resident of that state, or if youre in the military.
South Carolina is one of those states that garnishment can actually be a lot like a bankruptcy. You can get a lot of money back when you dont owe any of it. In fact, garnishment is often a more costly option than bankruptcy. If you are unemployed, you will almost certainly be ineligible for the more common bankruptcy option, but for a small fee that is. The idea of garnishment is that you can be sent to jail and get your money back.
This is not to say that most people in South Carolina are unemployed. The state has a very high unemployment rate, but it is a lot less than the national average. However, the state has a lot of people who are in the military and cannot be discharged from it, and getting their money is not a good option for them. So they choose to hire people like me to garnish my paychecks.
While I am not actively looking for jobs in South Carolina, I am pretty sure that if I were to get a new job, I would need to get a federal warrant. You can get arrested for doing this, and that could get you in quite a bit of trouble. The easiest way to avoid this is to do what every other person in South Carolina does: get a job. And if you do, get a federal warrant, too.
The federal laws pertaining to wage garnishment are called the Fair Labor Standards Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. For this reason, if you are in the armed forces, enlisting in the military is a good place to start.
If you’re lucky enough to get a federal warrant, you’re in luck. Since the law is based on the federal employment act, which is a federal law, you are exempt from the minimum wage and overtime provisions, but you must still comply with the other requirements. You can also be exempt from the minimum wage if your job is defined as “substantially similar” to a similar job you had before the law went into effect.
The minimum wage is a federal law, so as long as you’re in the armed forces your employer is exempt from the minimum wage. However, if you have an employer that has an open position for which you were previously exempt, you’re still subject to the federal law. So if you go to work at a fast food restaurant, youre still subject to the federal law.
If you’ve ever worked outside of the armed forces your employer is exempted from the minimum wage, but your employer is not. So do your job and then get on with your life.
The federal law is a bit tricky. You have to actually go to your employer, and you have to actually be willing to accept the wage garnishment order. You are not obligated to accept it. You are not required to pay it, but it could very well be that you would be if you were looking to have your wages garnished.
