Can I Lose My Job or Not Get One Because of Bankruptcy?

/, General, Oregon - Chapter 13, Washington - Chapter 13/Can I Lose My Job or Not Get One Because of Bankruptcy?

Can I Lose My Job or Not Get One Because of Bankruptcy?

The Bankruptcy Code, at 11 U.S.C. § 525(b) clearly and in no uncertain terms states, “No private employer may terminate the employment of, or discriminate with respect to employment against, an individual who is or has been a debtor under this title, a debtor or bankrupt under the Bankruptcy Act, or an individual associated with such debtor or bankrupt.”

It is simply against federal law for a private employer to either terminate or decline employment solely because of a bankruptcy filing. Oregon and Washington state laws also bar private employers from discriminating against bankruptcy filers.

Bankruptcy charges should be taken very seriously. If you have any other questions about Bankruptcy, contact our team at Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm. We are here to help. For top-notch legal representation, call our office today.
