In the event of the payment of such salary or earnings directly to such officer or employee, notwithstanding the existence of an assignment of, or power of attorney to collect or other instrument affecting, the whole or part thereof, not approved by such designated person, no person shall have any cause of action therefor against such authority for the recovery of any moneys by virtue of such unapproved assignment, power of attorney to collect or other instrument.
