After receiving notice from the CRA, is there a minimum notice an employee should receive before the employer can garnish their wages?

Let me run this one by Alan, our payroll poobah. Will get back to u as soon as I hear back.

Alan’s response: The garnishment notice itself will give a date from which any payments must be garnished. If there is no such date, the garnishment is effective from the date received.
Hope that answers your Q. Glenn

In my experience the employee also receives notice of the garnishment. I had received a notice from the CRA to garnish an employees wages, I immediately set up a meeting with the employee to inform them of the deduction.  Their response in was “Yeah, I know.  I received a notice.”  Kimberly
