Virginia Employment Law: Wage Garnishments (VA Code § 34-29)

As a courtesy to employers and employment lawyers, The Employment Law Chronicle provides links to the text of key Federal, Virginia, and District of Columbia labor and employment laws published on government sites.

In addition to setting restrictions on the amount of employee pay that can be garnished, the Virginia Wage Garnishment Law makes it illegal to fire an employee for being subjected to garnishment for a single debt.
