Not sure how they deal with wage garnishment with independant contractors(IC), but have a bit of a problem with the jobs.
I work in 2 places where you are on a list to be called for a job and if you cannot make it they go down to the next person. They like me so I get plenty of work. The last 5 months very slow for all.
I have a cc bill overdue 5 months and am not yet in collections, but it's a tough, aggressive company and they are known for not negotiating. Fear I will soon get the summons
So, since it is easier for the company just not to call me ,even though they like me, easier for payroll person, I could basically be fired without being told so (they can skirt the you are not allowed to fire with one garnishment law in NY since I am not an employee anyway).
So, I was wondering if anyone thinks, if I end up in court, that I could explain that to the judge and just put the 10% in a different account for them to automatically deduct. Or would the judge not listen to your sob story.Or has anyone ever heard of the judge saying work out a deal and ok-ing it?
Also, since my pay varies(one week I may not work, hence no paycheck, the next week slammed and good check. Would the judge look at past 1099's?
OR , would it be stupid to ask that they garnish from my bank account(would set up new one) directly. This way no loss of job issue.
Don't want to lose these 2 solid connections to work.
My summers are always slow and winters pick up. I see it already.
Also, should I mention to the Judge I am in modifying negotiations with my home.At this point, no shame, I'll play the sympathy card.
Any answers appreciated.
