In most cases an employer has to have a court order indicating whom is collecting and for what amount. The IRS is the only entity I know of that can force the garnishment of wages without a court order. The employer cannot garnish wages just because it wants to without warrant. If you owe the employer money, they would need to take all legal proceedings against you through the court systems. Department education, ssa, and other government entities can issue a wage garnishment w/out a court order. The government doesn't need to ask it's self for permission to get it's money back.
