Employment Discrimination Illegal Based on Bankruptcy

If you file bankruptcy, you are largely protected from employment discrimination. Section 525(a) of the Bankruptcy Code says that a public employer may not "deny employment to, terminate the employment of, or discriminate with respect to employment against" a debtor. Sec. 525(b) of the Bankruptcy Code states that a private employer may not "terminate the employment of, or discriminate with respect to employment against" a person who has filed bankruptcy.


If you file bankruptcy in Houston, TX, the case of Burnett v. Stewart Title, No. 10-20250 (5th Cir.) explains further employment discrimination in bankruptcy.
