lesser of (i) 15% of gross weekly wages or (ii) the amount by which disposable
earnings for a week exceed the total of 45 times the Illinois minimum hourly
Under Federal law, the amount of wages that may be deducted is limited to the
lesser of (i) 25% of disposable earnings for a week or (ii) the amount by which
disposable earnings for a week exceed 30 times the federal minimum hourly

TITLE III OF THE FEDERAL CONSUMER CREDIT PROTECTION ACT: RESTRICTIONS ON GARNISHMENT
Sec. 301. (a) The Congress finds:
(1) The unrestricted garnishment of compensation due for personal services encourages the making of predatory
extensions of credit. Such extensions of credit divert money into excessive credit payments and thereby hinder the production
and flow of goods in interstate commerce.
(2) The application of garnishment as a creditors’ remedy frequently results in loss of employment by the debtor, and
the resulting disruption of employment, production, and consumption constitutes a substantial burden on interstate commerce.
(3) The great disparities among the laws of the several States relating to garnishment have, in effect, destroyed the
uniformity of the bankruptcy laws and frustrated the purposes thereof in many areas of the country.
(b) On the basis of the findings stated in subsection (a) of this section, the Congress determines that the provisions of
this subchapter are necessary and proper for the purpose of carrying into execution the powers of the Congress to regulate
commerce and to establish uniform bankruptcy laws.
Sec. 302. For the purposes of this subchapter:
(a) The term “earnings” means compensation paid or payable for personal services, whether denominated as wages,
salary, commission, bonus, or otherwise, and includes periodic payments pursuant to a pension or retirement program.
(b) The term “disposable earnings” means that part of the earnings of any individual remaining after the deduction from
those earnings of any amounts required by law to be withheld.
(c) The term “garnishment” means any legal or equitable procedure through which the earnings of any individual are
required to be withheld for payment of any debt.
Sec. 303. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) and in section 1675 of this title, the maximum part of the aggregate disposable
earnings of an individual for any workweek which is subjected to garnishment may not exceed
(1) 25 per centum of his disposable earnings for that week, or
(2) the amount by which his disposable earnings for that week exceed thirty times the Federal minimum hourly wage
prescribed by section 206(a)(1) of title 29 in effect at the time the earnings are payable,
whichever is less. In the case of earnings for any pay period other than a week, the Secretary of Labor shall by regulation
prescribe a multiple of the Federal minimum hourly wage equivalent in effect to that set forth in paragraph (2).
(1) The restrictions of subsection (a) do not apply in the case of
(A) any order for the support of any person issued by a court of competent jurisdiction or in accordance with an
administrative procedure, which is established by State law, which affords substantial due process, and which is subject to
(B) any order of any court of the United States having jurisdiction over cases under chapter 13 of title 11.
(C) any debt due for any State or Federal tax.
(2) The maximum part of the aggregate disposable earnings of an individual for any workweek which is subject to
garnishment to enforce any order for the support of any person shall not exceed—
(A) where such individual is supporting his spouse or dependent child (other than a spouse or child with respect to
whose support such order is used), 50 per centum of such individual’s disposable earnings for that week; and
(B) where such individual is not supporting such a spouse or dependent child described in clause (A), 60 per centum of
such individual’s disposable earnings for that week;
except that, with respect to the disposable earnings of any individual for any workweek, the 50 per centum specified in clause (A)
shall be deemed to be 55 per centum and the 60 per centum specified in clause (B) shall be deemed to be 65 per centum, if and to
the extent that such earnings are subject to garnishment to enforce a support order with respect to a period which is prior to the
twelve-week period which ends with the beginning of such workweek.
(c) No court of the United States or any State, and no State (or officer or agency thereof), may make, execute, or
enforce any order or process in violation of this section.
Sec. 304. (a) No employer may discharge any employee by reason of the fact that his earnings have been subjected to
garnishment for any one indebtedness.
(b) Whoever willfully violates subsection (a) of this section shall be fined not more than $1,000, or imprisoned not
more than one year, or both.
Sec. 305. The Secretary of Labor may by regulation exempt from the provisions of section 1673(a) and (b)(2) of this title
garnishments issued under the laws of any State if he determines that the laws of that State provide restrictions on garnishment
which are substantially similar to those provided in section 1673(a) and (b)(2) of this title.
Sec. 306. The Secretary of Labor, acting through the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor, shall enforce the
provisions of this subchapter.
Sec. 307. This subchapter does not annul, alter, or affect, or exempt any person from complying with, the laws of any State
(1) prohibiting garnishments or providing for more limited garnishment than are allowed under this subchapter, or
(2) prohibiting the discharge of any employee by reason of the fact that his earnings have been subjected to
garnishment for more than one indebtedness.
