Unbelievable. I Can't Fire Him for this Nonsense

I have an employee who has three wage garnishments against him. Two are for child support obligations. And one is for failure to pay a credit card debt.

If your wages are being garnished for non-payment of child support you are a deadbeat in my eyes. Also, pay your damn credit card bills. 

I can't fire this loser dad for these 3 wage garnishments but it's totally legal for me to fire a gay dude who works for me and actually pays his child support on his own. 

Firing a respectable gay dad cuz he's gay is legal but I can't fire a deadbeat heterosexual dad who's having his wages garnished. God, I hope this loser quits.

So let him work and have his exes and creditors take most of his check.

Some states tend to push for garnishment, even if the father has yet to miss a payment.

Ummmm, at least he's working and paying it. I would hope you wouldn't fire any of them. The guy could be a loser, but he could have also fallen on hard times at some point in his life. I say this as a woman that has a deadbeat over $10,000 in arrears. My case is a deadbeat, your case may not be. I don't now, because I don't know the guy.

My employer uses "fit and suitibility' or changes the job title of a person they want to get rid of and rehires under a different title.  Thats how they turf people they no longer want with out actual written policy infractions
