The bankruptcy code specifically indicates that neither the government nor a private employer may discriminate against an employee or prospective employee based on the filing of a bankruptcy case.

The bankruptcy code states that a governmental unit may not refuse to issue or renew any type of license and/or deny employment to an individual that filed for bankruptcy protection. Furthermore, no private employer may terminate the employment or refuse employment to an individual that has filed for bankruptcy protection. A governmental unit and/or a private business may not deny the granting of a student loan, guarantee or loan insurance based on the filing of a bankruptcy case.
