You definitely can file a consumer proposal when your wages are being garnished. In fact one of the main advantages of a consumer proposal is that it has an automatic stay of proceedings that is put in place that will immediately stop most garnishee’s. As for your employer.

Technically no one is allowed to terminate an employee just for that fact that a consumer proposal has been filed. But you do have to be careful, as most employers can find a reason if they want to let someone go.
