Can An Employer Fire Me for Filing Bankruptcy?

The law provides express prohibitions against discriminatory treatment of debtors by bothgovernmental units and private employers. A governmental unit or private employer maynot discriminate against a person solely because the person was a debtor, was insolvent before or during the case, or has not paid a debt that was discharged in the case. The law prohibits the following forms of governmental discrimination: terminating an employee; discriminating with respect to hiring; or denying, revoking, suspending, ordeclining to renew a license, franchise, or similar privilege. A private employer may not discriminate with respect to employment if the discrimination is based solely upon the bankruptcy filing.
