    Is it possible for an employer to give an okay to garnish wages without the approval of the employee or without the employee even knowing?

    Depends. What was the garnishment for?

      And who issued the "garnishment"? A court?

      Just FYI, often, posters misuse the word "garnishment" when what they really mean is that the employer is making a deduction from their pay without their authorization to pay the company back for a real (or perceived) debt. This is NOT a garnishment; whether it is permitted by law or not is dependent on the state regulations, if any exist.
