[LISTEN] Struggling to pay your debt? New law safeguards you somewhat

South African Payroll Association Director Arlene Leggat says a new law safeguarding consumers with debts will help many cash-strapped South Africans.

Leggat says this means that if another garnishee order is sent out for someone who already has a number of them, the payroll person is expected to tell debt collectors to wait until the consumer completes paying off the other debts.
