A salary assignment arises out of an agreement between an employee (assigning debtor) and a third party (assignee creditor) who agree that the latter will acquire ownership of the assignable part of the compensation that the employer (the assigned) owes to their employee.
This agreement is an applied example of an assignment of debt claim.
