<Section operative until Sept. 1, 2023. See, also, § 706.050 operative Sept. 1, 2023.>
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the maximum amount of disposable
earnings of an individual judgment debtor for any workweek that is subject to levy
under an earnings withholding order shall not exceed the lesser of the following:
(1) Twenty-five percent of the individual's disposable earnings for that week.
(2) Fifty percent of the amount by which the individual's disposable earnings for
that week exceed 40 times the state minimum hourly wage in effect at the time the
earnings are payable. If a judgment debtor works in a location where the local minimum hourly wage is
greater than the state minimum hourly wage, the local minimum hourly wage in effect
at the time the earnings are payable shall be used for the calculation made pursuant
to this paragraph.
(b) For any pay period other than weekly, the following multipliers shall be used
to determine the maximum amount of disposable earnings subject to levy under an earnings
withholding order that is proportional in effect to the calculation described in paragraph
(2) of subdivision (a), except as specified in paragraph (1):
(1) For a daily pay period, the amounts shall be identical to the amounts described
in subdivision (a).
(2) For a biweekly pay period, multiply the applicable hourly minimum wage by 80 work
(3) For a semimonthly pay period, multiply the applicable hourly minimum wage by 86
2/3 work hours.
(4) For a monthly pay period, multiply the applicable hourly minimum wage by 173 1/3 work hours.
(c) This section shall become inoperative on September 1, 2023, and, as of January 1, 2024, is repealed, unless
a later enacted statute that becomes operative on or before January 1, 2024, deletes or extends the dates on which it becomes inoperative
and is repealed.
