  • § 3172. Employee protected

    No employee may be discharged from employment on account of trustee process issued to an employer against earnings. Discharge of an employee from employment within 60 days of service of a trustee process summons upon an employer shall be rebuttably presumed to be on account of the issuance of trustee process. Any employee discharged in violation of this section may sue in Superior Court for reinstatement of employment, back wages, and damages and, if that employee prevails, the court shall award costs and may award reasonable attorneys' fees to the employee.
