Fired for filing a Bankruptcy?

After talking to a concerned client whose employer has found about about thier bankruptcy filing I thought it would be helpful to make a post here for future reference. My client was concerned that they were going to be fired for the filing bankruptcy. I searched my memory and could not recall any previous clients reporting that they had been fired as a result of filing bankruptcy. This is probably because the law prohibits firing an employee solely for filing a bankruptcy. (See 11 U.S.C. 525(b)). If you think your employment has been terminated as a result of filing bankruptcy be sure to consult with an attorney!
