What happens if my judgment debtor moves jobs?
 
When this happens the Attachment of Earnings Order lapses from the date the judgment debtor leaves one job and goes to the next. The order remains in abeyance until the court directs that payments should start again from a new employer.

There is an obligation on the old employer to notify the court of the termination of employment within 10 days of that termination, and failure to do so is actually an offence.

Where the new employer is aware of the existence of an AEO order against a new employee, they too are obliged to notify the court of the debtor's anticipated earnings.

The debtor must also notify the court within 7 days of leaving employment or becoming re-employed, providing particulars of his anticipated earnings.

Failure to do so is an offence, punishable by imprisonment of no more than 14 days.
