While they can probably garnish money out of your check for payment, taking the entire check until the delinquency is paid doesn't seem fair. Is there someone in payroll or benefits that can be reasoned with to work out a payment schedule. Pay it back $50 a week for 20 weeks. Perhaps your supervisor can intervene on your behalf. To leave you with no pay is totally unreasonable.

Likely not. Most states have a maximum amount that can be garnished - like 75% of your check. But you'll need to contact your state labor board to have state specific information.
