Your Employer Will Not Find Out If You File for Bankruptcy

Posted on Tuesday (July 21, 2009) at 11:40 pm to Bankruptcy Tips Consumers Should Know

Your employer will not find out if you file for bankruptcyWritten by Craig D. Robins, Esq.

Some of my clients want to file for bankruptcy relief but are concerned that their employer will find out.  The truth is that generally an employer will not find out that you filed for bankruptcy unless you choose to tell them.

Here’s why:  the bankruptcy court does not get in touch with your employer and neither does the trustee.  Bankruptcy notices are not sent to employers.

The only reason an employer would be included in your bankruptcy petition is if you owe money to your employer, thereby making the employer a creditor.  However, this is exceptionally rare.

You should also know that it is against federal law for an employer to fire or discriminate against someone who seeks bankruptcy relief.
