AS 14.43.150. Order to Assign Wages For Defaulted Loan.

(a) In a court proceeding regarding a defaulted loan under this chapter in which the court has entered judgment in favor of the commission, the court may, on its own motion or motion of the commission, after notice and an opportunity for hearing, order the loan recipient to assign to the commission that portion of salary or wages due the loan recipient currently and in the future in an amount sufficient to pay the amount ordered by the court to be repaid to the commission.

(b) The order of assignment is binding upon an employer upon service of a copy of the order upon the employer and until further order of the court or until the employment of the obligee is terminated. The employer may, for each payment made under the order, deduct $1 from other wages or salary owed to the employee.

(c) An employer may not terminate an employee's employment because wages of the employee are subject to an order under this section.

(d) An assignment of wages authorized under this section that is made under court order has priority as against an attachment, execution, or other assignment, except for an assignment for payment of child support under AS 25.27.070 , restitution to a crime victim authorized under AS 12.55.045, or as otherwise ordered by the court.
