Sec. § 31A.290
Prohibition against discharge or discipline of employee as result of assignment.

An employer may not use assignments of income for payments to collect an obligation of support as a basis for the discharge of an employee or for disciplinary action against the employee. An employer who discharges or disciplines an employee in violation of this section shall reinstate the employee with no loss of pay or benefits, is liable for any payments of support not paid and shall be fined $1,000. If an employee prevails in an action for reinstatement based on this section, the employer is liable, in an amount of not less than $2,500, for payment of the employee’s costs and attorney’s fees incurred in that action.
