Hi JACustomer,
No employer is allowed to discriminate against any employee or potential employee because that person has filed a Bankruptcy. This rule is part of the Bankrutpcy Code, and is located at Bankruptcy Stat. 525.

I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
Thank you.

How much should what cost?
Expert:  cfortunato replied 5 years ago.

The fee to file a Bankruptcy is $306.

If you use a Bankruptcy attorney, you will also have to pay the attorney around $1,200 to fill out and file the papers.

If you use a Bankruptcy preparer, you will have to pay the preparer around $200 to fill out the papers, and then you can file yourself.
