The Effects of Bankruptcy on Professional Life
Lenders benefit by promoting the social stigma of bankruptcy. And what better way to generate fear than through your career. The simple truth is that losing your job, or encountering any type of discrimination based on your bankruptcy filing is prohibited by the federal government (11 USC §525(a) and (b)). It is typically uncommon for an employer to pour over bankruptcy proceedings to see if you have filed recently since firing anyone on such a basis is illegal.
Further, for most job applicants, AB22 prevents most employers in California from using applicants’ credit reports when making hiring decisions. These protections should afford some relief to those considering filing for bankruptcy but fearful of how it may affect their jobs.
